Disgraced former couple will face sentencing together
2:31pm Friday 8th March 2013 in News
Disgraced MP Chris Huhne and his ex-wife, Vicky Pryce, will be sentenced on Monday, the Crown Prosecution Service said today.
The former couple are both facing jail terms at the hearing at Southwark Crown Court at 2pm.
Pryce was found guilty by a jury yesterday of perverting the course of justice by taking speeding points for Huhne in 2003. The former energy secretary had already pleaded guilty to the charge.
Perverting the course of justice carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, although the average sentence is around 10 months.
Both 58-year-old Huhne and economist Pryce, 60, have been warned to be under no illusion about what punishment they face.
