Carvath was arrested by Nottinghamshire Police officers on 12 March 2019 after a report was made to the force that he was tweeting and posting footage online of a judge involved with a family case from 2017, which cannot be reported on for legal reasons.

The uploaded video, which was filmed outside the judge’s home address, showed bedroom blinds being closed. 

He has been bailed for sentencing on 5 May 2020.
