    Attention hack1ng trial: Brooks cleared of charges, Coulson guilty

    Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks: Denied all charges
    Ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has been cleared of all charges in the phone-hack1ng trial.
    Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was found guilty at the Old Bailey of conspiring to hack phones.
    The jury found Mrs Brooks not guilty of conspiracy to hack voicemails, two counts of conspiracy to pay public officials and two counts of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
    She and Coulson both denied all charges against them.
    They were among seven on trial at the Old Bailey.
    An emotional Mrs Brooks was taken away by the court matron on hearing the verdicts.
    BBC political correspondent Robin Brant was in court as the verdicts were read out on the 138th day of the trial.
    He said Coulson stood with his hands behind his back and showed "absolutely no emotion" as the verdict was returned.
    Mrs Brooks appeared to mouth "thank you" to the jury and also held the hand of her former personal assistant Cheryl Carter, who looked close to tears.
    Charlie Brooks, the husband of the former News International chief executive, also showed "virtually no emotion".
    There was dead silence in court on instruction of the judge as the verdicts were delivered by the jury forewoman. Some 70 people were present in the room at the time.

    What a load of tosh, both knew exactly what they were up to and the legalities IMHO.

    I suspect rumoured good relationship with the tory leadership has had a positive effect on the outcome for someone here.....

    Corrupt as fuck, god knows what the Judge said in his summing up to give them a way of finding them not guilty on the perverting the course of justice as their actions removing stuff should have been enough to find them guilty as it's the action not the result or or outcome of that action so the simple fact they removed shit that they thought the police might take should have given a guilty verdict.

    Never heard the question asked either how the fuck did they know 2 hours before hand the police would be coming.

    Who say's you can't buy justice

    All well and good, however her husband was at Eaton with Cameron many links and ties to the current leadership.

    Tony Blair's government was about as left wing as Cameron's government, regardless I think he's making the point friends in high and powerful places rather than a political statement as the are virtually all self serving scum.

    I agree, its not a political issue here its a status issue. However it was a verdict reach by a Jury of our peers.

    To be honest I am not surprised at the outcome, albeit a total piss take of our so called Judicial System.
    Somebody owes a massive favour somewhere. It seems everybody has a price, and in some cases, it will be paid no matter how high the price.
    High profile case like this, the rest of the world must be fucking gobsmacked at how high the corruption can go in the UK.

    Normally I totally agree and say well that's the verdict you have to accept it but in this case I am convinced it is a knobbled Jury/Judge and I know I will get labled a conspiracy theorist but if anyone had the connections, friends, influence and funds to do it she did.

    Totally agree, the jury would have been swayed by persuasion, a bloody strong persuasion to give the verdicts given.
    If the facts were read without human input, i.e from a book, as cold facts, then the verdicts could well have been different

    Oh cmon people. A couple of nice pictures of the judge with Mr. Whiplash and a few of the jury foreman getting some long time loving can go a very long way in the outcome of these trials.......Maybe the Judge's phone was hacked and revealed compromising details about his private life, Now that would be a good story lol.

    Here is an unpopular thought. Perhaps they were innocent all along?

    I did follow the trial and all the released evidence, statements and witnesses so I can honestly say there is not one ounce of doubt in my mind of their guilt never mind the perverting the course of justice charges I still have no idea how they can admit they did it and still be found not guilty.

    Don't blame them

    If society wasn't interested in sticking its noses into everyones affairs then this wouldn't of happened.

    Murdoch and Blair have spoken. I'll borrow your horse and buy your judge and jury.

    now if everyone had the same attitude then they wouldn't of had to snoop for info to put in their papers

    Do you honestly think snooping will end now - they will just find new ways of getting scoops
