Homophobic Insulter Avoids Prison by Paying Compensation



A 44-year-old woman has been sentenced by the Alicante Court to a six-month prison sentence for insulting and belittling a colleague as a Finestrat sports store to whom she used a homophobic insult.

The sentence, handed down by a court of the First Section, has considered her responsible for a crime committed against the exercise of fundamental rights and public freedoms recognised in the Constitution in conjunction with a crime against moral integrity.

Specifically, the court has considered it proven that on two occasions the accused approached her co-worker “with the intention of undermining her dignity as a person.” Likewise, she belittled her “because of her sexual condition due to her intolerance incompatible with coexistence”, and “verbally attacked her on both occasions”.

The defendant has admitted the accusation made by the Prosecutor’s Office and has acknowledged responsibility for the insults, after reaching an agreement. With this deal, she had assumed the advance payment of 1,000 euro to compensate for the moral damage caused to the victim.

The court, therefore, agreed to the suspension of the custodial sentence, after applying the mitigating circumstance of reparation for the damage. The judicial resolution is final, without the possibility of appeal.
