Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
