Quoted in Sweden’s Defense and National Security Adviser? ‘We Don’t Know This Guy’. (The New York Times, 2/26/2017)
Nils Bildt? Nils Tolling? Whatever name he's going by, the guy has a history. A criminal history. Prosecutors in Virginia charged him in 2014 with public drunkenness and obstruction of justice, both misdemeanors, as well as one felony count of assaulting a police officer, according to court records. He was convicted of misdemeanor assault in November 2014 and sentenced to 12 months in prison, although his sentence was partly suspended. It is not clear how much time he spent in prison, if at all, or where he was held.
