Stephen Bear sentence: Judge sends reality star to jail
Reality TV star Bear was back in court after being found guilty of sharing an explicit video of Georgia to Only Fans.
He was previously found guilty on two charges – voyeurism and sending the video on WhatsApp.
As a result, Judge Morgan sentenced him to 21 months in prison.
Additionally, he was also issued with a five-year restraining order at Chelmsford Crown Court.
‘People pay to watch Stephen Bear’
Recapping events, Judge Morgan said he was satisfied Bear knew his CCTV cameras were recording the pair in their intimate act.
He said Bear “wished to exploit the economic value of the recording”.
Bear had said earlier in the trial that he made money from uploading videos of himself online.
“In your own words ‘people pay to watch Stephen Bear’ that’s what you told the jury. The edited video is precisely that,” the judge then said.
He also added that Bear would’ve known the “economic value” of Georgia being in the video.
