According to BBC legal correspondent Clive Coleman, the purpose of the prosecution was to ensure that the public was aware that Internet users were also subject to the law of contempt.
On 27 November , a man from Liverpool received a fourteen-month suspended prison sentence for posting images on Twitter claiming to show Venables.
On 14 July , a woman from Margate in Kent was jailed for three years after sending Twitter messages to Bulger's mother in which she posed as one of his killers and his ghost.
On 25 October , a man was jailed for 26 weeks for stalking Denise Fergus. He had previously received a police warning for stalking her in On 31 January , a man and a woman pleaded guilty to eight contempt of court offences at the High Court after they admitted posting photos on social media that they claimed identified Venables.
Both received suspended prison sentences. On 13 March , actress Tina Malone was given an eight-month suspended prison sentence for posting Venables' identity on Facebook.
In January , a year-old woman from Ammanford received a prison sentence of eight months, suspended for 15 months. In November , she had published an alleged photograph of Venables on Facebook with the advice "share this as much as possible.
Shortly before his release, when aged 17, Venables was alleged to have had sex with a woman who worked at the Red Bank secure unit where he was held.
In April , in the aftermath of his imprisonment, these allegations were outlined in a Sunday Times Magazine article written by David James Smith, who had been following the Bulger case since the trial, and again later in a BBC documentary titled Jon Venables: What Went Wrong?
The female staff member was accused of sexual misconduct and suspended; she never returned to work at Red Bank. Some time thereafter, he began a relationship with a woman who had a five-year-old child.
It is not known whether Venables had already begun downloading child pornography at the time of dating the woman, though he denies having ever met the child.
In , when Venables was 23, his probation officer met another girlfriend of his, who was aged After a number of "young girlfriends", it was presumed that Venables was having a delayed adolescence.
In , a new probation officer noted that he spent "a great deal of leisure time" playing video games and on the Internet. In September that year, Venables was arrested on suspicion of affray , following a fight outside a nightclub; he claimed he was acting in self-defence and the charges were later dropped after he agreed to go on an alcohol-awareness course.
Three months later he was found to be in possession of cocaine; he was subjected to a curfew. On 2 March , the Ministry of Justice revealed that Jon Venables had been returned to prison for an unspecified violation of the terms of his licence of release.
The Justice Secretary Jack Straw stated that Venables had been returned to prison because of "extremely serious allegations", and stated that he was "unable to give further details of the reasons for Jon Venables's return to custody, because it was not in the public interest to do so.
In a statement to the House of Commons on 8 March , Jack Straw reiterated that it was "not in the interest of justice" to reveal the reason why Venables had been returned to custody.
Bulger's mother, Denise Fergus, said that she was angry that the parole board did not tell her that Venables had been returned to prison, and called for his anonymity to be removed if he was charged with a crime.
Venables's return to prison revived a false claim that a man from Fleetwood , Lancashire was Jon Venables. The claim was reported and dismissed in September ,  but reappeared in March when it was circulated widely via SMS messages and Facebook.
Chief Inspector Tracie O'Gara of Lancashire Constabulary stated: "An individual who was targeted four-and-a-half years ago was not Jon Venables and now he has left the area.
On 21 June , Venables was charged with possession and distribution of indecent images of children. It was alleged that he had downloaded 57 indecent images of children over a month period to February , and allowed other people to access the files through a peer-to-peer network.
Venables faced two charges under the Protection of Children Act At the court hearing, it emerged that Venables had posed in online chat rooms as year-old Dawn "Dawnie" Smith, a married woman from Liverpool who boasted about abusing her 8-year-old daughter, in the hope of obtaining further child pornography.
Venables had contacted his probation officer in February , fearing that his new identity had been compromised at his place of work. When the officer arrived at his flat, Venables was attempting to remove or destroy the hard drive of his computer with a knife and a tin opener.
The judge, Mr Justice Bean , ruled that Venables's new identity could not be revealed, but the media were allowed to report that he had been living in Cheshire at the time of his arrest.
Later the same year, he was cautioned for possession of cocaine. In November , a review of the National Probation Service handling of the case by Sir David Omand found that probation officers could not have prevented Venables from downloading child pornography.
Harry Fletcher, the assistant general secretary of the National Association of Probation Officers , commented that only hour surveillance would have prevented Venables from downloading the material.
Venables was eligible for parole in July On 27 June , the parole board decided that Venables would remain in custody, and that his parole would not be considered again for at least another year.
On 4 May , it was reported that Venables would once again be given a new identity, following what was described as a "serious security breach" which revealed an identity that he had been using before his imprisonment in Details of the breach could not be reported for legal reasons.
In November , it was reported that officials had decided that Venables would stay in prison for the foreseeable future, as he would be likely to reveal his true identity if released.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman declined to comment on the reports. On 23 November , it was reported that Venables had again been recalled to prison for possession of child abuse imagery.
The Ministry of Justice declined to comment on the reports. On 7 February , Venables pleaded guilty to possession of indecent images of children for a second time.
He pleaded guilty via video link to three charges of making indecent images of children and one of possessing a paedophile manual. He admitted being in possession of category A, category B, and category C child pornography images, and was sentenced to three years and four months in prison.
In September , he was denied parole. On 4 March , Bulger's father Ralph lost a legal challenge to lift the lifelong order protecting Venables' anonymity.
Judge Sir Andrew McFarlane turned down the request, saying that the "uniquely notorious" nature of the case meant that "There is a strong possibility, if not a probability, that if his identity were known he would be pursued resulting in grave and possibly fatal consequences.
In late June , it was reported that British officials had considered resettling Venables in either Canada, Australia or New Zealand due to the high costs behind protecting his anonymity.
The scene in the game involves a computer-generated detective pointing out the picture, which is meant to represent a fictional child abduction that the player is then asked to investigate.
Bulger's family, along with many others, complained and the game was subsequently withdrawn by its UK distributor, GSP. The game's developer, Legacy Interactive, released a statement in which it apologised for the image's inclusion in the game; according to the statement, the image's use was "inadvertent" and took place "without any knowledge of the crime, which occurred in the UK and was minimally publicised in the United States".
In August , Australia's Seven Network used real footage of the abduction to promote its crime drama City Homicide.
The use of the footage was criticised by Bulger's mother, and Seven apologised. They answered the question the next day, relaying the Australian government's denial that the killers had been settled in the country.
A storyline in Hollyoaks , set to begin in December , was cancelled after the makers gave Bulger's mother Denise Fergus a special screening. The storyline was to feature Loretta Jones and her friend Chrissy, who had been given new identities before arriving in the village, after being convicted of murdering a child at the age of The critical theorist Terry Eagleton introduced his book On Evil with the story of Bulger's murder.
