“Racist” Attacker Escapes Jail

A PURFLEET man escaped jail following a racist attack after friends from ethnic minorities defended him in court.

Jason McMahon, 39, River View, Purfleet pled guilty to assaulting Adi Kamara who was working as a security guard at Grays Railway Station on the 9th February this year.

Chair of the Magistrates, Mr P Sampson heard that McMahon had been to a wake and was extremely drink when he became involved in a dispute over a friend and his ticket.

The court heard that McMahon pushed Mr Kamara up against the wall, poked him in the eye and called him a “black monkey and a black bastard.”

In mitigation, McMahon’s defending solicitor, Ms Barham handed a series of testimonials from “friends who are ethnic minorities” to Mr Sampson.

Unemployed worker McMahon was given a suspended sentence for 18 months and fined £400.
