Crimes and Times

As is noted over here, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime:


A total of 38 months jail time was handed down on Wednesday to employees and clients of a London private detective agency which illegally hacked into telephone lines.

Eight people connected with the agency, which cannot be named for legal reasons, variously admitted charges of conspiring to intercept communications unlawfully, making unauthorised modifications to a computer, false accounting, and criminal damage to BT property.

I wonder, were these the same people helping out all of those newspaper reporters?
