Former Murdoch Executive Brooks Granted Bail on Phone Hacking-Related Charges

Friday, 22 June 2012 09:06 AM

Former Rupert Murdoch executive Rebekah Brooks has been granted bail until September as she awaits trial on charges of attempting to cover up evidence of phone hacking.

Brooks made a brief court appearance in London on Friday. She was bailed until a hearing on Sept. 26 at which she is expected to enter a plea.

Brooks, the former head of Murdoch's British newspaper operation, was charged last month with conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

Prosecutors say she removed boxes of material from the company's archive and tried to conceal documents, computers and other material from police.

Brooks has denied wrongdoing.

Her husband Charlie Brooks, her personal assistant, her chauffeur and two security personnel face similar charges. They all appeared at Southwark Crown Court Friday and were granted bail.
