A teenager who constructed a pipe bomb in his bedroom, which was filled with Nazi memorabilia, has been sentenced to a youth rehabilitation order.
Jack Coulson, 19, of Mexborough, was found guilty of constructing an explosive device and admitted possessing a document or record for terror purposes. He was sent by Leeds Crown Court to youth custody for four years and eight months.
Prosecutors said that Mr Coulson, who was living in Bradford at the time and was a member of the neo-Nazi National Action terror group, had downloaded The Big Book Of Mischief to his phone after allegedly boasting about wanting to kill a female MP. The 60-page manual provides information on building weapons.
According to prosecutors, Mr Coulson claimed that “all Jews should be exterminated”, while he was attending preventative intervention programmes.
Sentencing Mr Coulson, Judge Marson QC said: “Time and time again you were a given a chance in relation to the previous offence. Help was repeatedly given, but you continued to breach the order that was given to you. You are unable to address the very real problems which you have in relation to your right-wing views.”
