Those images, according to Reuters, had revealed the identities of defendants accused of sexually exploiting young girls, while jurors were still weighing the outcome of their case.

"Posting material online that breaches reporting restrictions or risks prejudicing legal proceedings is a very serious matter and this is reflected in the court's decision today", Cox said in a statement on Friday, when Robinson was found guilty.

SUPPORTERS of right-wing activist Tommy Robinson have "verbally abused" and "physically intimidated" journalists after he was sentenced to jail.

The judges also rejected claims by Yaxley-Lennon that he had made checks in the court about reporting restrictions.

Outside court, his supporters gathered at a double-decker bus blocking the street at the the Ludgate Hill end. Yaxley-Lennon, who uses the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, was arrested and jailed a year ago for potentially prejudicing a trial after the Facebook broadcast outside a trial of men accused of sexually abusing teenage girls.

The office said Robinson was sentenced to six months in prison for that incident and a further three months for a previous contempt.

By aggressively confronting and filming some of the defendants in that case as they arrived at court, he interfered with the course of justice.

However he successfully appealed against the conviction and was released.

The case then was referred to Attorney General Geoffrey Cox in May of this year after High Court judges approved his request to bring fresh proceedings against Robinson, citing public interest, Sky News reported.

The former English Defence League (EDL) leader attended court for his sentencing 20 minutes late, wearing a t-shirt reading "convicted of journalism", saying he had been delayed by supporters.
