Judge Not, Lest...

Margurite Dawn Haragan, 58, went to an acquaintance’s house in Boise, Idaho, and allegedly started making a ruckus. What did she want? “The defendant was banging on the front window yelling at [the homeowner] that she better believe in Jesus and she was not going to leave until she did believe in Jesus,” says Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck. When the homeowner came out to see what her friend wanted, Haragan slapped her, grabbed her hair, and pulled her to the ground, Rothcheck says. “The defendant began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area,” he said. “During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.” After Haragan allegedly started stomping on the victim’s neck, the victim, identified only as a Jewish woman with the initials “A.G.”, promised she would convert, and Haragan left. When Haragan returned two days later, only then did A.G. call police. Haragan has been charged with two counts of malicious harassment, a felony that’s classified as a hate crime.
