Tag ‘kidnap’ cricket star is hit for six!
A FORMER county cricketer who held a security guard prisoner in his home when he turned up to fit an curfew tag on his leg has been sentenced to... ANOTHER tagged curfew!
Surrey player Robin Sterling would not let G4S worker Orville SinclairAnderson leave his house for more than half an hour when he called to fit the electronic tag in March 2013, a court heard.
Sterling, 55, pleaded guilty to falsely imprisonment and was sentenced to another curfew, which will mean him having to be fitted with a tag again.
At Gloucester Crown Court Judge Jamie Tabor QC also ordered him to pay £200 compensation to Mr Sinclair-Anderson.
After being sentenced Sterling, of Quedgeley, Gloucester, who at times stood in the dock reading a paper, stormed from court shouting “Yo, Rasta forever! Use the law against me. Sooner or later I will get justice in a proper court. Black and proud”.
And after the judge had imposed the six-week 8pm-8am curfew and compo order, Sterling stormed from court shouting about racism and could be heard outside swearing.
