Derby: As per media reports a British soldier has been jailed for 10 months for racially abusing his Sikh neighbours by calling them “ISIS slags” and “dirty Pakis”.
Christopher Blurton, 51, was found guilty at Derby Crown Court after he was charged with racially aggravated harassment against two women neighbours in Manchester Street, Derby.
He has been jailed for 10 months, Derby Telegraph reported.
The abusive man sent the two Sikh women a note whinging about the state of their garden, in which he claimed they were members of ISIS, it said.
Blurton initially denied racially aggravated harassment between June 28 and August 19 last year but was found guilty on Friday.
“You frightened these two young women. They felt that they needed to move out. Your criminal record shows that you have resorted to violence in the past and had committed offences when drunk,” Recorder Adrian Redgrave said while sentencing Blurton. Blurton acted in that way towards the women because they were Asian, he added.
