Gol­li­wog wo­man ‘not guilty’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A WO­MAN charged with racially ag­gra­vated ha­rass­ment af­ter dis­play­ing a gol­li­wog in her win­dow has de­nied the of­fence.

Jena Ma­son, 65, was ar­rested af­ter her black neigh­bour Rose­marie O’Don­nell com­plained about the doll to po­lice.

Ma­son ( above) ar­rived at court flanked by her hus­band and two other men who at­tempted to block pho­tog­ra­phers at the en­trance.

She spoke only to con­firm her name and ad­dress and en­ter a plea of not guilty.

Out­side, BNP mem­ber Howard Mar­jo­ram, 66, said the party would be lend­ing her its sup­port at fu­ture hear­ings.

He said: “To have all this fuss over a gol­li­wog is a trav­esty. I am here to see jus­tice done.”

Ma­son, of Wor­ling­ham, Suf­folk, was re­leased on un­con­di­tional bail and did not speak as she left Low­est­oft Mag­is­trates’ Court, where her case was ad­journed for a case man­age­ment hear­ing on Oc­to­ber 11.

“You can’t beat sex out­doors.”
