A man who pleaded guilty to August disturbances last year has been jailed.
Odilon Soumalat, 23, of Stevens Avenue, E9, was sentenced to 27 months imprisonment on 17th January 2012 at Wood Crown Crown Court.
On 8th August 2011 Soumalat was seen on CCTV in Clarence Road, E8, throwing bottles at police officers. He was later identified via the footage by an officer from Stoke Newington police station.
Detective Constable Gemma Wade, from Hackney’s Operation Withern team, said: “This is an excellent result and shows that officers at Hackney continue in their efforts to identify and bring to justice those people responsible for the August disturbances. Results such as this make the hard work seem even more worthwhile.”
