In the case heard by the Birmingham Court, it was stated that British fan Simon Silwood, who sent racist messages to Sawyers from his account on the social networking site Facebook, was sentenced to two months in prison and a fine of 500 pounds.
District Judge Briony Clarke, who made the decision, said: “There is no place for racist attacks online. In my view, this action is very clearly punishable by jail time.” made its assessment.
After the match in which West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League lost 5-0 to Manchester City last year, Silwood sent the message to the football player.
Romaine Sawyers, a citizen of Saint Kitts and Nevis, a federal country consisting of two islands in the Caribbean, is on loan in Stoke City this season.
