Court Quashes Sentence of Herut Leader Who Broke Up Neo Nazi Meeting

The Court of Appeals has upheld an appeal by Ronald Stephen Jacobs, chairman of Young Herut in Britain, against his sentence in connection with the breaking up of a meeting of Neo-Nazis from Britain and Germany at Brighton.

Jacobs was sentenced on June 23, 1972 at Lewis, Sussex Crown Court to a 100-pound fine and a six-months suspended prison sentence. The Court of Appeals, in addition to quashing the sentence, also gave Jacobs his costs out of public funds.
