News has just broke that Arthur Collins who threw acid over a crowded nightclub has added 8 more months added to his sentence after he took a phone into prison to call his ex girlfriend and mother of his child Ferne McCann.
Arthur smuggled the phone into his prison cell to call his ex and it was last month when Arthur confessed to having the phone in his cell and is using two sim cards and and two memory sticks inside a crutch while awaiting trial over the attack, which left 16 people with chemical burns and three people temporarily blinded.
Judge Nicholas Heathcote Williams has said:
‘The presence of a mobile phone or component part such as a Sim card has many implications, not only for the prison establishment, but also the wider environment.
‘It provides a prisoner or prisoners with an opportunity to communicate they would otherwise not have.
‘This therefore allows them to act in a way prison is supposed to prevent them from doing.’
