Can you go to jail if you’re caught speaking publicly about an investigation or court case?

You always see on the news that there’s always that one person who spills details anonymously. But has this ever sparked an investigation to try to find out who that anonymous person was?

    Many times, and the person is usually charged with obstruction of justice.

    No, and there are no laws preventing the discussion of investigations or court cases unless one is personally involved in a court case such as being a juror on the case.

    if there is an official 'gag order' the charge would be contempt of Court.

    I am sure there have been many investigations on that subject but I could not quote one specifically. In many trials any involvement of the public can influence the jurors and taint the outcome of the trial.
