MOUNT HOLLY - Two men have admitted to roles in burning a wooden cross in rural Burlington County last year.
Burlington County officials say Daniel Enders, of Bass River Township, and Nicolas Comis, of Tuckerton, pleaded guilty to bias intimidation in the February 2011 cross burning in Bass River.
It happened about 700 feet from where a black family lived. Officials have never said whether the family was targeted.
Both are 22 and both face 364 days in jail. But Enders can avoid jail time if he completes a drug-treatment program.
A third man, 21-year-old Christopher Hurrell previously pleaded guilty. He could have avoided jail time by completed a drug-treatment program, but he violated its rules and is in prison.
