Police Officer Jailed

A former police officer has been jailed for 10 months for selling details of the arrests of footballer John Terry's mother and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood to The Sun newspaper.

Ex-Surrey Pc Alan Tierney was sentenced at the Old Bailey after admitting two counts of misconduct earlier this month.

He pleaded guilty to two counts: one between March 26 and April 3, 2009, and a second between December 2 and 7, 2009.

He sold details about Sue Terry and Sue Poole, the mother and mother-in-law of former England football captain John Terry, being arrested on suspicion of shoplifting in Surrey.

He also sold details about the arrest of guitarist Ronnie Wood, 65, on suspicion of beating up his Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova, who is in her 20s.

Terry, Poole and Wood all accepted cautions over the matters.

Passing sentence at the Old Bailey, Mr Justice Fulford said that Tierney's offences were "a disgraceful way for a police officer to act".
