Man jailed for racially aggravated assault


A 28-year-old man has been found guilty and sentenced to 11-weeks imprisonment at Boston Magistrates Court for causing racially aggravated harassment and being drunk and disorderly in Kirton.

Michael “Cabbage” Patton, of no fixed address, was convicted on February 22 and was sentenced on Friday at Boston Magistrates’ Court.

The charges relate to February 19 and 20, where Patton was found to be drunk and disorderly on Station Road, Kirton, before committing an assault on a person in a racially aggravated attack the next day. He was arrested on February 20.
