They have been living anonymously with new identities since being released from a life sentence for the kidnap, torture and murder of James in 1993, when they were both aged 10.Ms Malone’s barrister told the High Court on Wednesday that, on reflection after giving evidence, the 56-year-old accepted that she was in breach of the injunction.He said she understood that Venables had been given anonymity for his protection.The actress star told the court she was not aware that she was doing anything wrong when she shared the post.The 55-year-old, who is an ambassador for the James Bulger Foundation, told the court that she had been on anti-depressants at the time of the post, having suffered a mental breakdown.She also said she had been in financial difficulty for the past year. The actress told the court: “I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 28, although it was called manic depression then. I have felt like I have had it since I was seven or eight.”Last year or the last two years was the worst two years of my life. And so yes, I was bad, really really bad. I was for the first time in my life, I was actually suicidal in the December of 2017 and January 2018.” Actress Tina Malone has been given an eight-month suspended sentence after she admitted posting details on social media about one of the killers of toddler James Bulger.The former Shameless star admitted sharing a post on Facebook which included a photograph and the new name of Jon Venables.After admitting breaching a worldwide injunction a judge gave her an eight month prison sentence, but suspended it.The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett, also ordered Malone to pay £10,000 towards the costs of the case. Lord Burnett, sitting with Mr Justice Warby, said: “We have concluded that, although the custody threshold is undoubtedly passed in this case, the personal circumstances and mitigation of this defendant are such that we should impose a suspended committal order.”Taking account of everything that we have heard, we order that the defendant be committed to prison for eight months, but we suspend that order for two years.”The judge said that, if Malone committed another contempt of court within two years, she would be jailed for eight months plus any additional sentence she may be given for the further offence. The case is being held at the High Court The court heard the post was originally made by another Facebook user and Malone shared it onto her own profile.Following the ruling Ms Malone’s solicitor, Mark Manley, said: “She’s naturally very happy that this matter is now concluded and that she is able to go home to her family this evening.”He added: “She’s obviously very sorry to have found herself in this position.”The case has been brought by the Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox. A court order was made “against the world” in 2001 banning the publication of anything that purports to reveal the identities of Venables and Robert Thompson.
