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.
