An Ames man was sentenced Wednesday to about 16 years in prison after he set fire to a church LGBTQ flag in June.
A
dolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames, last month was found guilty of a hate crime – a class "D" felony – third-degree harassment and reckless use of fire.

Police said he stole a pride banner hanging at Ames United Church of Christ, 217 6th St., and burned it early June 11 outside Dangerous Curves Gentleman’s Club, 111 5th St.

Supporters of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who gathered outside of her office in Los Angeles on Thursday burned an American flag that they snatched from the back of a pickup truck.
According to the Associated Press, the group had gathered with the expectation they would be confronting a far-right group, called the Oath Keepers, after they said they would hold a rally.
When a vehicle driven by two white men approached, the counter-protesters, who had been chanting "black power" and other slogans, stopped it, opened the doors, and grabbed the flag out of the back.
The truck drove off, but the flag was stepped on and burned.
One person yelled, “This is not the American flag, this is their flag," according to the AP, which posted photos of the incident.
No injuries or arrests have been reported and Waters' office did not immediately reply to the AP's request for comment.
