Royal Hacker Pleads Guilty
LATEST: CLIVE GOODMAN, the royal editor of British newspaper the News Of The World, has admitted he plotted to intercept the telephone messages of royal family employees. British royal Prince William voiced concerns of phone hacking earlier this year (06) after details of a TV interview appeared in the News of the World before the meeting had actually taken place. Today (29NOV06) Goodman and private investigator GLENN MULCAIRE pleaded guilty to charges at London's Old Bailey. Goodman's lawyer JOHN KELSEY-FRY said sorry on behalf of his client insisting, "He apologises unreservedly to the three members of the royal household staff concerned and their principals, Prince William, Prince Harry and the PRINCE OF WALES." Mulcaire admitted a further five charges of unlawfully intercepting voicemail messages left by a string of public figures, including publicist Max Clifford and supermodel Elle Macpherson. Goodman and Mulcaire are now facing a possible jail term when they are sentenced in January (07).
