During Robert Riley's sentencing, chairwoman of the bench Georgina Scannell voiced her disgust at his "vile" and "offensive" online messages.
The offensive messages outraged the public. You had complete disregard for the tragic death of Ann Maguire.
Besides this, countless other vile messages were made by you.
The bench finds these were racially and religiously aggravated.
The offences are so serious that only a period of immediate custody can be justified.
