Australian radio host under house arrest for contempt

An Australian magistrate ordered radio host Darryn Hinch, 67, to serve five months of house arrest for naming two serial sex offenders on the air, a breach of serious sex offender laws in Australia, the Herald Sun reported Thursday.
Hinch was participating in a campaign to end the legal suppression of the names of sex offenders in the country.
On of Hinch's supportes, a victims of crime advocate, said "Derryn has been gagged for five months and in a way I suppose in a way we're all in home detention with him," the Herald Sun reported.
