Rebekah Brooks Charged with Conspiring to Hack Phones

Rebekah Brooks, the former editor of News of The World and the flashpoint for the News Corp. phone hacking scandal, has been officially charged with conspiring to hack into phones.

It was just last week that Brooks, Andy Coulson (former media head for Britain’s Prime Minister) and five others were accused of “conspiracy unlawfully to intercept communications.”

The Huffington Post reports that all six are being charged with hacking phones over a six year period.
