Brown Reporter Faces Jail

A reporter who covered CHRIS BROWN's recent assault case faces a prison sentence for posting illegal video footage from inside the court building on the Internet.
Russell Alan Wetanson uploaded clips of interviews, conducted outside the Los Angeles courtroom, where Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna on 22 June (09), to his website.
But it is illegal to tape footage or take photographs inside the official building - and new legal documents filed are requesting Wetanson is held in contempt of court.
Wetanson, who is also a lawyer, was notified by the public information officer of the court of the violation and the videos were subsequently removed from his website.
Brown was handed a community service order, five years supervised probation and he was ordered to stay away from the Umbrella hitmaker.
