Former prison officer Richard Trunkfield has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for selling information about James Bulger's killer Jon Venables to The Sun newspaper, it can now be reported.
Trunkfield, 31, from Moulton, Northamptonshire, admitted leaking information while working at high security Woodhill Prison near Milton Keynes. It could not initially be reported that the prisoner involved was Venables because of legal restrictions on reporting his whereabouts.
But the court heard today that Venables is no longer at Woodhill. Trunkfield pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office between March 2 and April 30, 2010.
