A former police sergeant is facing jail after admitting selling information to The Sun newspaper.
James Bowes, 30, from Steyning, West Sussex, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey today to misconduct in a public office in 2010.
He was remanded on unconditional bail to be sentenced on 9th May.
Mr Justice Fulford warned him that the fact he had been given bail was "no indication of disposal".
No details of the case were given during the short hearing.
Bowes is said to have passed on information of investigations to the tabloid between 9th April and 20th July 2010 while working for Sussex Police.
The managing editor of The Sun, Richard Caseby, has launched a stinging attack on the government-sponsored Royal Charter, accusing it of being "draconian" and "bodged together".
The Girlguiding movement, which counts over half a million members, have signed a petition calling on The Sun newspaper to stop the use of page 3 topless models.
In a poll of its members, who are aged 16 to 25, 88% called on Sun editor Dominic Mohan "to finally take bare boobs out of The Sun".
Julie Bentley, chief executive of Girlguiding, said: “We are very proud that young women in Guiding are choosing to speak out and play a part in building the society they want to live in.”
Passing sentence on both men in separate hearings today, the Judge, Mr Justice Fulford said:
Former prison officer Richard Trunkfield has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for selling information about James Bulger's killer Jon Venables to The Sun newspaper, it can now be reported.
Trunkfield, 31, from Moulton, Northamptonshire, admitted leaking information while working at high security Woodhill Prison near Milton Keynes. It could not initially be reported that the prisoner involved was Venables because of legal restrictions on reporting his whereabouts.
But the court heard today that Venables is no longer at Woodhill. Trunkfield pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office between March 2 and April 30, 2010.
Former Police Constable Alan Tierney has been jailed for 10 months today at the Old Bailey for selling information to the Sun newspaper.
The Sun could be set to follow the lead of other UK newspapers in charging readers to view online content.
Fellow News International publications The Times and Sunday Times introduced a paywall in July 2010.
Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh has given her reaction to accepting "very substantial" damages and a public apology from The Sun after her stolen mobile phone was accessed by the newspaper.
After speaking out against News International at the High Court today, Chris Eubank told ITV News the company "took everything away from me when they broke my marriage."
