Four years after the launch of Operation Elveden, the number of public officials convicted of misconduct in public office stands at 26. A further seven out of the original 80 who were arrested are still awaiting trial, while four have been acquitted.
Their sentences range from between 13 weeks to two years, and total more than 20 years. In contrast, the number of journalists convicted as a result of the operation stands at two.
Former Mirror and News of the World journalist Dan Evans pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office. And Sun reporter Anthony France was found guilty of aiding and abetting misconduct in public office after his police source was paid more than £22,000 for stories.
