Ann Maguire stabbing: Twitter abuser Robert Riley jailed

A man has been jailed for eight weeks for posting abusive Twitter messages about the death of school teacher Ann Maguire.

Robert Riley, 42, from Port Talbot, appeared before magistrates in Swansea.

Mrs Maguire, 61, was stabbed to death in her classroom at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds on 28 April.

Riley previously admitted to sending a message of a grossly offensive, abusive or malicious character and was said to be "mortified by his own behaviour".
