A Rhyl man who took a mobile phone photograph of defendants in a high-profile court case while the proceedings were taking place has been fined.
Mark Sweetman, 27, was heard boasting that he hoped to make a lot of money by selling the picture to newspapers.
He was in court on November 5 when nine people pleaded guilty to naming the victim in the Ched Evans rape case on Twitter and Facebook.
At Prestatyn Magistrates' Court today, prosecutor James Neary said that Sweetman had attended court to support a friend who was among the defendants.
Sweetman was charged originally under the Contempt of Court Act, but the charge was withdrawn since it would have needed to be ratified by the Attorney General.
Instead, Sweetman admitted taking a photograph of court proceedings without consent.
He was fined £110 and ordered to pay costs of £100.
