Julian Assange Gets 50 Weeks In Jail

London (CNN)Julian Assange has been sentenced to just under a year in a UK prison on Wednesday after he was found guilty of violating his bail conditions when he entered Ecuador's London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden in 2012.

"You had a choice and the course of action you chose was to commit an offense," Judge Deborah Taylor said.

"You've not surrendered willingly ... you would not have come voluntarily before the court," she added, before handing down an "imprisonment of 50 weeks."
