Reporter Jailed For Hacking Royal UK Phones

Via -

The disgraced royal editor of the News of the World and a private investigator were jailed yesterday after admitting hacking into hundreds of messages on mobile phones belonging to aides of the Royal Family.

Clive Goodman, 49, a senior journalist on the Sunday tabloid, was sentenced to four months, while Glenn Mulcaire, 36, a freelance "researcher", got six months after judge Mr Justice Gross described their conduct as "reprehensible in the extreme".

"This was serious criminal conduct," he said while passing sentence at the Old Bailey. "It's of very first importance to the fabric of our public life that such intrusive, sustained, criminal conduct should be marked by an immediate loss of liberty".
