Stephen Bear’s fiancee could face jail time after filming inside prison

He is serving 21 months in prison.

Stephen Bear’s fiancee Jessica Smith could be facing jail time after she posted a video of herself online following a visit to him in prison.

Bear is currently serving a 21 month long jail sentence after he was found guilty of voyeurism and of two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

Bear was charged and sentenced after he shared an intimate video on his OlyFans account of him and his ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison without her consent.

The video showed the two having consensual sex filmed on a CCTV camera in Bear’s garden as Georgia was unaware she was being recorded.

Going to visit her soon to be husband in prison, Smith shared footage from inside the facility on TikTok.

Smith invited followers to: “Come with me on a visit to see my boyf.”

The video follows her day as Smith boils the kettle, gives her dog a treat, brushes her teeth and has a shower, gets dressed and heads off.

She then shares footage of the visitor’s waiting area and a clip of herself being “checked in”.

The last clip of the montage reads: “So good to see him but sad cos I can’t see him for another two weeks.”

This is the clip she could potentially be in trouble for as it is a legal offence in the UK to take a photograph or record inside a prison.

Section F1 40D of the Prison Act 1952 states “other offences relating to prison security”, including: “A person who, without authorisation: (a) takes a photograph, or makes a sound-recording, inside a prison, or (b)transmits, or causes to be transmitted, any image [F2, sound or information] from inside a prison by electronic communications for simultaneous reception outside the prison – is guilty of an offence.”

In section F4 part 5, the act continues that if a person is found guilty of “an offence under this section” they might be liable “on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to a fine (or both)” or “on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding [F5 the general limit in a magistrates’ court] or to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum (or both).”
