Tommy Robinson has been sent back to prison after being sentenced to nine months in prison.

He has been sentenced for encouraging vigilante action against the defendants in a grooming case that was subjected to reporting restrictions to prevent the trail collapsing.

Tommy Robinson began live streaming of the grooming gang on Facebook.

He was found guilty of contempt of court last week in relation to the live streaming which was broadcast to nearly a million followers.

The impact the live streaming almost allowed the groomers to walk free from conviction at Leeds Crown Court, It had such a serious impact on proceedings that the legal proceedings were almost dropped.

Despite Robinson trying to expose the grooming gang he feel foul of the law, it’s not known if Robinson was aware reporting restrictions were in place as usually the media are informed of such restrictions when they request the information from the courts.

Robinson was jailed for 13 months last year and was released from prison upon appeal and resentenced today for nine months.

The maximum sentence is two years’ imprisonment.
