Kayla Norton and Jose Torres will each serve several years in prison for disrupting a black child's birthday party in 2015. They made armed threats, said racial slurs and waved the Confederate battle flag.

The Klan members told the Douglas County Sentinel the prison sentences were a tragedy, and they hope to bring more than a hundred people to protest at the county courthouse Sunday at noon.

The Douglas County sheriff downplayed the rally, however, saying he expects no more than 12 people.
