Tommy Robinson could be sentenced to more prison time on Tuesday, when a judge rehears his contempt of court case.

Robinson has now fired his legal team, as they were pushing for him to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding returning to prison. The 35-year-old independent journalist and activist told The Sunday Times, “I’d rather go to jail for the next 25 years than accept guilt for telling the truth.”

In May, Robinson was arrested for contempt of court while filming outside a Pakistani grooming gang trial in Leeds, as the case was under a reporting ban. In August, the charge was struck down by Lord Chief Justice Burnett and two other judges — but he will now be subjected to a retrial.

Robinson’s reporting is heavily focused on Islamic extremism and his imprisonment stemmed from an arrest last year, also for contempt of court, when he was trying to film Muslims who were on trial for another grooming gang in Canterbury.

The arrest and same-day imprisonment of Robinson lead to thousands of people going out in the streets to protest.

Robinson was imprisoned from May until August. During his detention, he lost over 40 pounds due to concerns about the inmates preparing his meals. He repeatedly complained to the prison and requested that they raise the £12 per week commissary spending limit so that he could purchase more packaged food, but they would not allow him to.
