Camera Phone User Faces Contempt Charge
from the had-to-happen dept
Well, it had to happen sooner or later. With all the stories of people banning mobile phones here, there, and everywhere, someone was going to get caught breaking the rules. Over in Scotland, someone is being charged with contempt of court for using a mobile phone to snap pictures while being sentenced for driving without insurance. The article is a little unclear, but it sounds like the person who was sentenced gave her phone to some friends who actually snapped the pictures – though, it’s the owner of the phone who’s getting charged.
