UK MP Given Three-Month Jail Sentence For Lying To Avoid A Speeding Fine

A UK MP has been given a three-month jail sentence for lying to avoid a speeding ticket and is expected to try to remain in office despite calls to stand down.

Fiona Onasanya, the MP for Peterborough and a former Labour whip, was sentenced on Tuesday for perverting the course of justice following a retrial.

Sources close to Onasanya, the first serving MP to be jailed in 28 years, said she was believed to be planning to return to work as an MP once she leaves prison. She will continue to be paid while in prison, parliamentary sources confirmed.

Labour and the Conservatives have called for her to “do the decent thing” and resign immediately.
