A judge has jailed a young man for the manslaughter of his grandfather in the first televised sentencing to take place at the Old Bailey. Judge Sarah Munro QC made legal history on Thursday as she sentenced 25-year-old Ben Oliver to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months. The footage was being broadcast on news channels and being made available online through Sky News, the BBC, ITN and the PA news agency. The move to allow cameras in the crown court follows a change in the law in 2020 but implementation was delayed due to the pandemic.
