Vegas Judge Orders Swastika Face Tattoos Covered for Trial

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas judge has ordered a cosmetologist to cover up a defendant’s neck and facial tattoos that include a swastika and the words “Most Wanted” on each day of his robbery trial.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reportsthat District Judge Richard Scotti decided that Bayzle Morgan’s tattoos should be concealed in an effort to get him a fair trial.

Morgan has tattoos including a swastika inside a clover under his eye, the words “Skin Head” on his eyebrows and “Baby Nazi” written across his neck.

It comes after an entire group of potential jurors said last month that they couldn’t be impartial after seeing Morgan’s tattoos. A new group will see him in makeup starting Monday.

Defense attorney Dan Bunin says he supports the move.

Morgan also has been charged with murder in a separate case.
