Guilty plea for man who harassed the Jewish Chronicle

By Jennifer Lipman, March 28, 2011

A man has pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment against the Jewish Chronicle.

William James Hannaford of Euston pleaded guilty to one charge at the Old Bailey on Monday morning.

During a three month period last year Hannaford phoned the Jewish Chronicle office hundreds of times, shouting about “dirty rotten Jews” and “Jewish cockroaches".

Hannaford, in his late 50s, was caught after he failed to use a withheld phone number for a call last April.

He will be sentenced in May following psychiatric reports and health checks.
