A Colorado Fox News reporter has been spared jail time until August after a judge delayed decision on her case.

Jana Winter was in court after refusing to divulge how she received confidential information about Colorado shooter James Holmes.

The hearing was meant to determine whether a gag order was violated, and whether or not Winter will be ordered to testify on how she obtained the confidential information. Winter initially cited anonymous law enforcement officials as her source.
