9 out of 10 Social Media Rape Anonymity Breach Defendants Plead Guilty, fined USD 1000 in compensation

Following our story about the Welsh rape victim being named on social media, the nine people on trial on Monday 5th November all pled guilty immediately and were ordered to pay compensation of GBP 624 (USD 997) to the victim, effectively ending those cases. It is unclear whether the one teacher in the group will face separate sanctions from their educational authority in Wales.

A tenth person pled not guilty so that trial will start in 2013. The BBC has the summary here updating its initial story from a month ago.
