Earlier Friday, the former European elections candidate and English Defence League founder was put on trial in a London court for a retrial of a contempt of court charge over his alleged interference in a case against a sexual grooming gang operating in the UK.
Tommy Robinson is guilty of contempt of court over broadcasting a trial on Facebook Live, High Court judges have ruled.
"The respondent's conduct amounted to a serious interference with the administration of justice," Dame Victoria Sharp, president of the Queen's Bench Division, said of the ruling.
Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was previously found guilty and sentenced to 13 months in jail in May 2018 for live-streaming outside a criminal trial in violation of UK law on reporting. However, the charge was quashed by an appeals court, with the 36-year-old released after spending two months behind bars.
