Barnsley Woman Spared Jail After Leaking Information To Press

Friday November 29 2013

Sandhurst Sandhurst

A BARNSLEY woman who pocketed around £1,000 in exchange for information about Prince William and Prince Harry has been spared jail.

Tracey Bell, a pharmacist's assistant who worked at Sandhurst military college, received the money after leaking details to a tabloid newspaper.

Military bosses suspected the 35-year-old of the leaks after stories based on classified information appeared in the press.

Bell, from Goldthorpe, pleaded guilty to one charge of committing misconduct in a public office.

Sentencing Bell to a nine-month jail term, suspended for two years, Mr Justice Saunders said: "Not only was selling the information a breach of her duty as a public official, but also a breach as a medical professional."

Defending Bell, Japinder Singh said his client ‘showed remorse’ and had got her life back on track.

He added: "This whole experience has had a significant effect on her. There are no indications of her committing further offences."

Having looked at some of the crimes that is being committed lately all you have to do is say sorry and you can get almost away with it. A few months community instead of Jail

It wasn't as if she'd just let something slip she took money for information. Regardless of it been about princes how does she think terrorist attacks occur on military? It was basically greed and she didn't think what the impact could have been. Look at what is on the news at the minute. Attack on a soldier on UK soil in broad daylight.
Send her dooooooooooown mi lud
