Andy Coulson, former News of the World editor and the former spin doctor of British Prime Minister David Cameron, leaves the Central Criminal Court in London, Wednesday, June 25, 2014. Coulson was convicted of phone hacking Tuesday, but fellow editor Rebekah Brooks was acquitted after a monthslong trial centering on illegal activity at the heart of Rupert Murdoch's newspaper empire. A judge on Wednesday dismissed the jury at Britain's phone-hacking trial after it failed to reach a verdict on two final counts, having convicted him of hacking a day earlier. Judge John Saunders ended the trial after jurors said they could not agree whether Coulson and ex-royal editor Clive Goodman were guilty of paying police officers for royal phone directories. Prosecutors said they would announce next week whether they would seek a retrial. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
