Brooks Could Face More Charges

Rebekah Brooks, former chief executive of Rupert Murdoch's News International, made her first appearance at the Southwark Crown Court on Friday to face three charges of conspiring to pervert the course of justice by alleged plotting to hide phone-hacking evidence from the police. But Brooks could face further charges over phone hacking itself, and she is expected to learn whether that will happen by the end of summer. Her husband, Charlie, faces one count of perverting the course of justice.
