April Casburn, a U.K. senior police officer who was the first person convicted in the U.K. tabloid scandal, was sentenced Friday to 15 months in prison.

Casburn, a detective chief inspector in the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorist financing unit, offered confidential information relating to the phone-hacking investigation to the shuttered weekly tabloid News of the World in exchange for money.
