Man jailed for live streaming court proceedings

A man has been jailed for live-streaming someone giving evidence in court.

David Davies, 39, from Llantwit Fardre, used Facebook to stream the proceeding form the public gallery during a trial at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday.

The footage was seen online by a member of the public and reported to police. When Davies returned to court on Tuesday to continue watching proceedings he was arrested.

Unfortunately cases such as this are becoming more and more commonplace. There are prominent notices within all courts about the use of mobile phones before people enter the courtroom. This should serve as a warning to others who think that the law does not apply to them.

– PC Richard Sellek, South Wales Police

Davies was sentenced to 28 days in jail for contempt of court.
