Sus­sex Po­lice said most of the re­ported in­ci­dents took place through­out the sea­side re­sort, with most of the of­fences hap­pen­ing from the early evening through to 3am. Hand­ing Bar­butu a sus­pended sen­tence, Judge David Ren­nie said he would have been fac­ing prison but for the fact he speaks no English and suf­fers from mental im­pair­ment. He said: “You caused great fear and on­go­ing an­guish. They were sim­ply go­ing about their busi­ness and they were fully en­ti­tled to be left alone.” Bar­butu was handed one 12-month sen­tence and 10 ninemonth sen­tences to run con­cur­rently.

The sen­tences were sus­pended for two years and he was or­dered to carry out 40 days of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.
