LONDON (AP) — Police investigating the British media's phone hacking scandal say a former News of the World journalist has been charged with hacking offenses.
Metropolitan Police said that 37-year-old Daniel Evans was charged Tuesday with conspiring with others to intercept voicemail messages of public figures and other charges, including perverting the course of justice for allegedly making a false witness statement in court.
Evans was arrested in August 2011. He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
