Far-right British anti-immigration activist Tommy Robinson was sentenced to nine months in jail on Thursday for livestreaming the defendants in a 2018 trial, according to CNN.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was found in contempt of court by two London judges for streaming footage of the defendants, who were accused of sexually exploiting underage girls, and revealing the men’s identities while the jury was still deliberating. The trial was subject to reporting restrictions to avoid prejudicing its outcome.

The article goes on to state the following:

Robinson was initially sentenced to 13 months in jail, but successfully appealed his conviction.  The maximum sentence for contempt of court is two years.

    I’m British and what the country has done To Tommy Robinson is absolutely disgusting, the last time he was put in prison he lost 40 Lbs and was beaten up and almost died because they put him in with Muslims.
    What is happening in Britain is ugly and freedom of speech is gone, the justice system is so corrupt and evil and side with the evil invaders that are destroying and taking over.
    He brought out about these Raping gangs that are all over Britain raping young children, Paul Golding is another activist they have thrown in prison for standing up to the truth.
    I’m disgusted with Britain and if people don’t wake up here, this will happen here and we are seeing it now, look at what is in Congress and more are running for government slots, if Americans wants to save this country from what is happening in Britain and Europe everyone of us have to stand up against this evil that is destroying World Wide.
    I’m afraid that Tommy Robinson’s life is in danger because the corrupt system in Britain will throw him in with the evil invaders.
    The Media is very corrupt as it is here, there will be a WAR eventually as the country is under siege from those that are destroying Britain.
