A transgender member of Antifa in San Diego was sentenced to approximately 5 years in prison for violently attacking Trump supporters in Pacific Beach last year.
Erich Louis “Nikki” Yach, 38, was one of the 11 members of Antifa indicted earlier this year and was sentenced to 56 months is California state prison on Thursday.
The Post Millennial reported:
The first of 11 Antifa defendants who rioted in Pacific Beach more than a year ago was sentenced to prison on Thursday. Erich Louis “Nikki” Yach, now 38, admitted to three violent felonies in a plea deal and was sentenced to 56 months in a California state prison. Yach will have 362 days credited against his time in prison, for the 316 days served along with “good time custody credits.”
Those who were victims of Yach during the Antifa riot in Pacific Beach, California, on January 9, 2021, were expected to speak Thursday morning in court, but none appeared on the courtroom’s video monitor. The hearing had been moved to a different, numbered courtroom so that might have been a contributing factor to their absence.

Police arrested several violent protestors that day and a grand jury in San Diego indicted 11 defendants, according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office.
The indictment actually calls out Antifa by name and alleges all defendants “are all affiliated with Antifa” and used “force, fear, and violence to further their interests and suppress the interests of others.”
The grand jury brought 29 felony counts, including conspiracy.
