— A senior British counterterrorism detective has been found guilty of trying to sell information to Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid.

Detective Chief Inspector April Casburn was convicted Thursday. She was charged with misconduct on accusations she phoned the newspaper and offered to pass on information about whether London’s police force would reopen its stalled phone-hacking investigation.

Prosecutors said the newspaper did not print a story based on her call and no money changed hands.

Casburn, 53, who managed the Metropolitan Police terrorist financing investigation unit, had denied the charges.

The scandal has led to dozens of arrests. It involved allegations of illegal snooping on celebrities, crime victims, politicians and others.
