Former head of English Defence League in Newark sentenced to 12 month community order for racially and religiously-aggravated crime of threatening behaviour
The former head of the English Defence League in Newark has been sentenced to a 12 month community order for a racially and religiously-aggravated crime of threatening behaviour.
Chris Conroy, who set up the English Defence League’s (EDL) Newark division, admitted threatening behaviour with intent to cause a man alarm or distress.
Nottingham magistrates found the offence was aggravated by the defendant's hostility, which was based upon on sexual orientation or the presumption of sexual orientation.
