Chef Gordon Ramsay's In-Laws Charged in Computer Hacking Case

Ramsay had previously accused his wife's father of hacking into his email and siphoning money in 2011

A few of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's in-laws are heading to court over charges of computer hacking, London's Metropolitan Police Service said Tuesday.

NBC News reported that Chris Hutcheson, 68, is the father of Ramsay's wife, Tana, and is among those charged with violating the Criminal Law Act of 1977 between Oct. 23, 2010, and March 3, 2011. He will appear in court March 14 with three of his other children who are charged as well. Police said they "conspired together to cause a computer to access programs and data held in any computer without authority." 

Tana, an author and TV host, has been married to Ramsay for 20 years and is famously estranged from her father. She is not named in the case.

This is not the first time Hutcheson has been accused of hacking. Ramsay had fired Hutcheson as chief executive of his holding company in October 2010 before alleging the following year that Hutcheson hacked into his email and even siphoned 1.4 million pounds (about $1.75 million) from Gordon Ramsay Holdings. The two reached a settlement out of court.
