(Newser) – The Australian DJs whose royal hoax led to the suicide of a nurse they duped might face criminal charges, reports Scotland Yard says it working with the Crown Protection Service to determine whether any laws were broken, without providing more details. Meanwhile, Australia's media watchdog is exploring whether the stunt by Michael Christian and Mel Greig violated "broadcast obligations," reports the BBC.

It seems Scotland Yard is working amongst themselves and trying desperately to find law(s) violation(s) in order to FIX a criminal case against the 2 DJs, so that the CPS agrees to prosecute. All prosecutors like criminal cases that they know they can actually win NOT cases that they have to FIX. By now, Scotland Yard should know whether or not the DJs violated any law(s).

What bullshit. The nut case nurse had problems long before the DJs hit the scene. Criminal charges my ass.
