Three private investigators who obtained confidential telephone records as part of Hewlett-Packard's boardroom spying probe pleaded not guilty today in a California court to identity theft and other felony charges.
Ronald DeLia, of Needham, managing director of Security Outsourcing Solutions Inc., Matthew DePante of Florida-based Action Research Group Inc., and Bryan Wagner of Colorado were arraigned in Santa Clara County Superior Court. Each was released on personal recognizance.
DeLia, DePante and Wagner are among five people criminally charged last week for their roles in the spying scandal at the computer and printer giant. Former HP Chairwoman Patricia Dunn and the company's ousted ethics chief, Kevin Hunsaker, appeared in court late last week.
