A man who sent malicious communications via a social media network has been jailed.
Joshua Bonehill-Paine, aged 24 of HMP Wayland has been sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, today (Thursday 8 December) at the Old Bailey after being found guilty of racially or religiously aggravated harassment (non violent), contrary to Section 28 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
Bonehill-Paine was also given a five-year Criminal-Behaviour Order.
Between 26 October 2014 and 25 January 2015 Bonehill-Paine orchestrated a campaign of anti-Semitic harassment, publishing abusive online articles on his white supremacist website and blog.
Police officer DC Claire Star said: “No-one should put up with harassment and racial abuse and I would urge any victims of such crime to report them to police. Bonehill-Paine is a prolific offender who uses the internet to target innocent people and destroy lives and I am pleased that today he has received a further two-year jail term to add to the sentence he is currently serving.”
