The judge in the case, Christopher Ramras of the Multnomah county circuit, also ordered that Rockhill read Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates, and watch the documentary Myanmar’s Killing Fields, which concerns the Rohingya genocide in the south-east Asian country.

Rockhill was ordered to write 750- and 500-word essays on what he has learned, to the satisfaction of his probation officer.

The terms of Rockhill’s plea deal also include two years of probation, a written apology to IRCO, 50 hours of community service and a mandate that he stay away from IRCO buildings.

Ramras has issued similar sentences. In 2019, after an Oregon man told a Ukrainian immigrant to go home, Ramras ordered the writing of an essay about issues facing eastern European immigrants, the Oregonian reported.
