Exeter man sentenced for abusing homeless woman outside cinema

Tuesday March 14 2017

Local news outlet Exeter Express and Echo reports on the sentencing of a man who racially abused a homeless woman outside a cinema in Exeter in December 2016.

James Brett, 29, admitted racially aggravated harassment after shouting and swearing at the woman and a man who were sleeping rough on the steps of Exeter’s Odeon Cinema.

Brett had been out drinking and shouted ‘get out you P***!’ and ‘you need to get out of our f****** country’ at his black victim.

Katherine Todd, defending, told Exeter magistrates court Brett had been a rough sleeper himself in the past and was ‘utterly ashamed of himself’.

Brett was fined £110 by magistrates who said the racial element of his abuse was ‘beyond the pale’.
