In sentencing remarks on jailing Ian Edmondson for eight months, a judge said that the former News of the World news editor pleaded guilty at a "very late stage".
The judge added: "He pleaded not guilty and maintained that plea during the main trial until I discharged the jury from returning a verdict in his case due to his ill health.
"He played no role in the hacking of Milly Dowler's voicemail which ultimately led to the closure of the News of the World."
