The man, who pleaded guilty to a racially and religiously aggravated public order offence, has been given a community and restraining order.
Kristian Omilian, 30, of Perse Way, Cambridge, was caught on CCTV sticking anti-semitic stickers on the front of the synagogue in Auckland Road, Cambridge in November last year. His fingerprints were also found on the stickers.
Yesterday, February 9, he was given a 12-month community order at Cambridge Magistrates Court, for which he has to attend up to 15 days of rehabilitation activity and 120 hours’ unpaid work.
He also received a two year restraining order instructing him not to go within 100 yards of the synagogues in Thompsons Lane and in Auckland Road, Cambridge and to pay a victim surcharge and court costs.
Inspector Nick Skipworth said: “We take all reports of hate crime very seriously and are pleased with yesterday’s results.
“After identifying Omilian’s fingerprints on the stickers, we carried out a search warrant at his home where we arrested him and recovered the remaining stickers.”
