Daniel Courney, aged 33, had appealed against a decision by Lincoln Magistrates after the CPS pressed charges over complaints by Muslims in the area. A woman and her family claimed that the preacher singled her out and reported to the police that Mr Courney called her ‘ISIS’ and told her to ‘go back to your country’. He denied this, and the Crown Court agreed, quashing the sentence imposed by the Magistrates.
