Former husband and wife Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce have been sentenced for perverting the course of justice. Both were given eight month custodial sentences.
Then wife Pryce took speeding points on behalf of her ex-husband. Chris Huhne resigned as Liberal Democrat MP for Eastleigh and Vicky Pryce is no longer director of FTI Consulting.
Part-time judge Constance Briscoe, a friend of Pryce, has also been arrested in relation to the case after allegedly lying to the police. The Crown Prosecution Service has said it will be applying for costs to awarded against Huhne, who changed his plea to guilty and resigned as an MP on the day that his trial was due to begin.
Huhne, judge said, "tried to lie yourself out of trouble" again and again— peterwalker99 (@peterwalker99) March 11, 2013
Pryce's not guilty plea showed a "controlling, manipulative and devious side to your character", judge says— peterwalker99 (@peterwalker99) March 11, 2013
