FILE - This is a Thursday, May 10, 2012 file photo of Andy Coulson, the former editor of the News of the World newspaper and former director of communications for Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron as he arrives to appear at the Leveson Inquiry at the High Court in London. British authorities on Tuesday July 24, 2012 charged an ex-aide to the British prime minister, a former protege of media mogul Rupert Murdoch and six others in the ever-widening phone hacking scandal, accusing them of key roles in a lengthy campaign of illegal espionage that victimized hundreds including top celebrities Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The Crown Prosecution Service's Alison Levitt told journalists that Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, both former editors of Murdoch's now-shuttered News of the World tabloid, are among those being charged with conspiring to intercept the communications of more than 600 people between Oct. 3, 2000, and Aug. 9, 2006.(AP Photo/Alastair Grant, File) less
