Tempe mosque vandalism: Probation for woman caught on video

PHOENIX - A woman who was captured on video making derogatory comments about Muslims as she took pamphlets from an Arizona mosque was sentenced to 18 months of probation for her criminal damage conviction.

Elizabeth Dauenhauer was with a friend in early March when Dauenhauer tore down fliers from bulletin boards and removed pamphlets from bins in a fenced-in courtyard behind the mosque in Tempe.

The two women are known for making anti-Muslim statements at political events.

In the video, Dauenhauer refers to Muslims as Satan-worshippers and claimed the mosque had pamphlets on Islamic training camps in America.

In one clip, Dauenhauer holds a child in one hand as she takes away pamphlets with the other hand.

Dauenhauer expressed remorse for her actions.
