News of the World former editor cleared on 1 charge

LONDON -- Former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks was acquitted Thursday of one of the five charges she faced over wrongdoing at Rupert Murdoch's British tabloids — an allegation that she bribed an official for a picture of Prince William in a bikini.

Judge John Saunders told the jury at Britain's phone hacking trial that there was “no case for Mrs. Brooks to answer” to one charge of conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office.

The charge related to a picture obtained by The Sun newspaper when Brooks was its editor, showing Prince William dressed as a Bond girl at a party. Saunders said “considerable uncertainty” had arisen about the source of the photo.
