Stephen Henry Bear had posted an explicit video of his former partner, Georgia Harrison onto his Only Fans account, landing him a 21-month prison sentence. Georgia Harrison was unaware that the video had been filmed and then publicly shared.

Reality TV star Stephen Bear appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court today (Thursday, 28th March, 2024).

Following his conviction for voyeurism, disclosing private sexual images without consent and breach of bail conditions, an investigation was launched by Financial Investigators from Essex Police Proceeds of Crime Team to establish how much Bear made from his criminality.

Concluding today's hearing, Judge Christopher Morgan agreed with the case put forward by FI Laura Mackenzie, and the Crown Prosecution Service, and agreed Bear generated £22,305.46 by sharing the private material.

Today’s hearing concluded with the judge ordering Bear to pay £22,305 as a confiscation payment and £5000 as direct compensation to Georgia Harrison. He has been given three months to pay this.

In a statement, Georgia Harrison said "I’m really grateful to the CPS and Essex police for all their hard work to ensure the confiscation order was enforced today and to the court for awarding me the money earned by the defendant from the proceeds of crime.

"Nobody has the right to earn money from any crime, but to earn so much from image based sexual abuse is abhorrent.

"I think it’s important that anyone who commits this awful crime, should be made to give any money they made to the victim after a successful conviction.

"I will be giving some of the money to charities of my choice who have supported me throughout this ordeal and I just want to thank Essex police force and Judge Christopher Morgan for once again ensuring that justice is served.

"I also think this is a clear example of why it is so important to report these sorts of crimes to the police. They’re there to help you, so let them".
