Racial abuse prick jailed
A MAN who admitted racially abusing a U.S. army veteran on a tram with two other males has been jailed.
Juan Jasso was verbally attacked and had beer thrown at him for tackling the trio for using foul language on the Metrolink tram in Manchester on June 28.
Jobless Robert Molloy, 20, of no fixed address, was jailed for six months for abusing Mr Jasso and two other men.
Sentencing of Aaron Cauchi, 19, was adjourned over illness while a boy, 16, was given a six-month referral order.
The court heard the local trio had been drinking all night when they went on a 7.45am “rampage” and abused Mr Jasso and two other people in separate incidents.
Their abuse of Mr Jasso was filmed by a passenger and widely viewed.
