Man racially abused judge

    A man who made antisemitic remarks about a Jewish judge who had ruled against him has been given a 12-month suspended prison sentence and fined nearly £2,000.

    Gregory Hughes, who owned a tattoo business in Sheffield, admitted to making a number of derogatory comments about District Judge Charles Khan's Jewishness and position as
    a judge.

    He made the remarks during Judge Khan's ruling after losing civil proceedings against Nicholas Keddey on March 10 this year at Sheffield County Court.

    The judge, apparently, did not hear what had been said. But the comments were heard by the court's usher, who then reported them, and a formal complaint was made.

    The court usher described the words as "insulting, racist and abusive".

    Court records state that Hughes called Mr Recorder Khan a "Jewish bastard, c***, f****** Jew", while the judge was ruling on the civil case.

    Last Monday (July 5), Mr Hughes was found in contempt of court under the County Courts Act for wilfully insulting a judge.

    Mr Justice Openshaw, at the Sheffield court, imposed the maximum sentence of one month, suspended for a year, and ordered the defendant to pay costs assessed at £1,994.29.
