Prison for Two Pirates

Prison sentences have been handed down to two pirate broadcasters in the UK after the station they operated – Klass – was heard quite clearly by air traffic control at Rochester Airport in Kent.
The sentences consisted of 6 months for one of the men and 4 months for the other.
These sentences are heavy compared to 1999 when 47 people were prosecuted for their involvement in illegal broadcasts and fines averaged £239.
