Skylar Laine’s Ex-Boyfriend Pleads Guilty to Hate Crimes (VIDEO)

Skylar Laine’s ex-boyfriend, Joseph Dominick, plead guilty to a hate crime yesterday (Jan 3) in connection with the 2011 hate crime murder of James Craig Anderson.

The night Anderson was murdered, Dominick and some friends were celebrating his birthday, During the party, they discussed going into town to harass and assault blacks.

The American Idol 11 alum was still dating Dominick at the time of his birthday party. Sources say that it’s very likely she was present that night at the party. Skyler’s mom told a reporter that her daughter had a good relationship with Dominick during the time they dated, but refused to answer further questions.

Dominick was not present when Anderson was killed, but there is evidence that in the months before the murder, armed with a hand gun, he came into the city to “assault and harass African Americans. He even used a sling shot to shoot metal ball bearings at two of his victims.”

Joshua Ledet was one of Skylar’s best friends on the show, so it’s hard to imagine that she’s a racist. Damn, that she’d date one though.
