CAMP LEJEUNE, N. C. – A U.S. Marine identified as an opponent during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is sentenced in a court-martial, and the Corps is seeking to remove him from its ranks.

A spokesman for the 2nd Marine Logistics Group in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, said in a press release that the 21-year-old Lance Cpl. Vasillios Pistolis was sentenced to 28 days for the detention Monday and processed for administrative separation.”

The Corps was to examine the costs Pistolis disobeyed an order or regulation and false statements.

The spokesman said he could not give more details about the costs.

The court-martial came after a ProPublica and PBS Frontline reported in May that Pistolis was a member of a neo-nazi group, and bragged about the violence he committed at the rally.

Pistolis could not immediately be reached.
