Racial Slur Nets 30-Day Jail Term

June 11, 1987

A 45-year-old Glendale man who pleaded no contest to taping a racially derogatory note to the apartment door of a black resident was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in County Jail and put on three years' probation, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Phil Heeger.

Jack Anthony Ferreira, who is white, was arrested in March by Glendale authorities and charged with misdemeanor terrorism after he taped the note to a 39-year-old woman's apartment door on the 200 block of North Maryland Avenue, according to police.

Last October, the City of Glendale formed a Human Rights Relations Council to investigate a series of racial incidents, including racial epithets and swastikas scrawled on a black-owned delicatessen on Brand Boulevard. No arrests have been made in connection with those incidents.
