Human headline silenced for 5 months
Media identity Derryn Hinch aka @humanheadline tweeted on 20 July:
Big day tomorrow. Back to Austin for blood tests and condition update. Then Mag. Court 11a.m. for sentencing. #liver
On 21 July 2011, Magistrate Rozencwajg sentenced Hinch to five months home detention, the conditions of which included a ban on gainful employment, media appearances and use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter. The decision to impose a home detention order was due to the Magistrate considering Hinch's fragile health, as he received a liver transplant only two weeks before the court appearance.
