Rebekah Brooks, former News International chief executive, accompanied by her husband Charlie Brooks, leaves the Central Criminal Court Tuesday in London. Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was convicted of phone hacking Tuesday, but fellow editor Brooks was acquitted after a months-long trial centering on illegal activity at the heart of Rupert Murdoch's newspaper empire. The trial was triggered by revelations that for years the News of the World used illegal eavesdropping to get stories, listening in on the voicemails of celebrities, politicians and even crime victims.
