BREAKING: Man who threatened to kill Eastbourne MP jailed
An Eastbourne man has been jailed today (Thursday) for threatening to kill the town's MP.
Mark Sands, 50, was sentenced to four months in prison after making threats online to Caroline Ansell MP.
Sands, a factory worker of Upperton Gardens, pleaded guilty at Hastings Magistrates’ Court in March after it heard he wrote, “If you vote to take £30 off my money, I will personally come round to your house ... and stab you to death.” This was followed by an expletive.
Sands was sentenced at Brighton Magistrates Court.
