Twitters beware: 8 months stretch beckons
The first case of its kind and a juror is given 8 months for facebooking a defendant. A clear case of contempt of court.
The Attorney General wanted to show off his size 9's and has done so. The case cost millions of pounds (much of this yours and mine incidentally) and was brought to a halt because of this act of stupidity.
This is a new precedent. Whether the DG will try something similar with injunction busting Tweeters we shall have to wait and see.
