Julian Assange gets 50 weeks in prison for jumping UK bail

Julian Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in a UK prison Wednesday for violating his bail conditions when he holed up in London’s Ecuadorian embassy to avoid arrest.

The WikiLeaks co-founder, 47, was found guilty of breaching the UK’s Bail Act last month when he entered the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations, which he has denied.

Assange saluted with his fist as he arrived at Southwark Crown Court on Wednesday for his sentencing, the Daily Express reported.

Julian is safe, he will be in protective custody on American soil soon. No worries here!

He's not going to eat as well as he did in the embassy, that's for sure. Maybe he'll lose a little of that weight he gained while holed up at the embassy. It didn't look like he took advantage of the exercise room while he was there.
