More News of the World Editors Facing Charges

Two former editors of the now shuttered tabloid News of the World are facing court dates. The Crown Prosecution Service is bringing charges against Neil Wallis and Jules Stenson for conspiracy it alleges they engaged in with former editor  Andy Coulson and others to intercept voicemail of persons in the news between 2003 and 2007. Mr. Wallis was deputy editor of NotW, and Mr. Stenson was features editor of the paper.

Mr. Coulson was convicted on hacking charges earlier this year and sentenced to prison.
