Three guilty of race abuse in Manchester

February 11, 2010

A mother and son who squirted water at and verbally abused religious Jews in Salford have pleaded guilty to racially motivated attacks.

Police had been seeking Dean Parker, 22, from Salford, after he failed to attend a court hearing in November. At Minshull Street Crown Court on Monday, he was convicted of eight counts of racially aggravated common assault . His mother, Shameem Parker, 52, admitted one count. Over a dozen people were sprayed with water by the occupants of a Fiat Doblo as it drove through Broughton Park in June. The driver, Barry Clark-Millar, 52, of Dundee, pleaded guilty to eight charges.

Anti-social behaviour orders are being sought against all three by the Crown Prosecution Service. Sentencing was adjourned until March after Shameem Parker was taken ill.
