Federal Judge Goes after Shawna Cox's Rights of Free Speech...

The 59-year-old Cox was the woman who filmed the inside-the-truck video footage of LaVoy Finicum's murder on January 26, 2016.

According to US District Judge Robert E. Jones said, "She's not going to make any public comment, at all, period, or she could sit in jail."

Cox was released from custody on January 29. However, she has been under home detention since that time.

Oregon Live reports:

The judge told Cox she must refrain from making any comments by phone or social media about her case "or any future protest movements."

Tiffany Harris, Cox's lawyer, objected to the scope of the order, but said her client would abide.

Shortly after her release, Cox was allowed to attend Finicum's funeral in Kanab. Otherwise, she was ordered placed on GPS monitoring, home detention that permitted her to leave home only for work, medical appointments, religious services or other activities permitted by a pretrial services officer. She also isn't permitted to possess any firearms and can only travel to Oregon for court.
