    Sahil Gupta, the second man charged over the Telecom voicemail hacking incident in April, walked free from an Auckland court last week. Gupta was charged along with a teenager who cannot be identified for legal reasons. The teen was charged with unauthorised access of a computer system and pleaded guilty. Gupta was charged under the same section of the Crimes Act and faced up to two years in prison.

    However two justices of the peace discharged Gupta saying there was no case to answer after a hearing in the Auckland District Court on Wednesday.
