Man sentenced for Exeter Synagogue arson and terrorism offences.

A man has been given an indefinite hospital order after pleading guilty to an arson and two charges under the Terrorism Act following a hearing at the Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey) in London today (Friday 5 July). Exeter man Tristan Morgan, aged 52, of no fixed abode, was first charged in connection with a fire at Exeter Synagogue on Saturday 21 July 2018. Following a joint investigation by local officers and Counter Terrorism Policing South West working with the Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Morgan was further charged with collecting information and encouraging terrorism. Morgan was given an indefinite hospital order and only the courts can consider his potential release. Morgan was also given a ten year terrorist notification order which means that he will be subject of long-term monitoring by the police and partners.
