Claire Dickerson admitted racially aggravated threatening behaviour

Magistrates found her offending was racially aggravated, when she admitted them to the court at an earlier hearing on December 12 last year.

The case was adjourned until this week to allow the Probation Service to prepare pre-sentence reports.

Dickerson was given a community order to include a six-week electronically-monitored curfew between 7pm and 7am at an address in Highfield Road, Doncaster, until February 22 this year.

She must pay £66 in compensation, an £85 victim surcharge and £40 costs.
