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.
