Florida man jailed for streaming trial on Facebook Live
Central Florida Man
|Why this nomination?||Because 6 months in jail is not worth the 15 minutes of fame.|
|Description:||GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A Central Florida man has been sentenced to nearly six months in jail after a judge caught him livestreaming video during an attempted murder trial.
Alachua County Circuit Judge William Davis found 24-year-old Jonathan Clyde Davis in contempt on Thursday, almost immediately after deputies confronted him and took his phone.
Davis had been in the gallery during the trial of Frederick Littles Jr., who was convicted Friday of second-degree attempted murder. Davis initially told the judge he was only making an audio recording to make music later, but it turned out a video was actually being streamed on Facebook Live.
State Attorney Bill Cervone says witnesses had already been reluctant to testify about the October 2015 shooting, and the video could have been a type of intimidation.
