Fabrice Muamba tweeter Liam Stacey might go to prison

by | 20th, March 2012

WHEN Liam Stacey wrote odious tweets about Fabrice Muamba, he was hounded on twitter. Stacey’s name was forwarded to the police. Stacey offered excuses and apologised on twitter. But that was not enough. Liam Stacey was arrested.

Stacey, from Pontypridd and studying at Swansea University, has stood in the dock before Swansea magistrates to answer for his tweets. He had spent the previous night in custody.

Lim Stacey pleased guilty to inciting racial hatred. He was released on bail. He is banned for using any social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook. But he can go on the web. He can go on sites run by the EDL, Stormfront and other far-right groups.

He will be sentenced next week.
