Judge and best-selling author Constance Briscoe faces prison after a jury found her guilty on Thursday of intending to pervert the course of justice in the Chris Huhne speeding points scandal.
She is believed to be the first UK judge in living memory to be convicted of the offence, which goes straight to the heart of the administration of justice.
The 56-year-old showed no emotion as the verdicts were returned. She was found guilty on all three counts of intending to pervert the course of justice.
Judge Jeremy Baker will sentence her on Friday. He warned her it was “almost inevitable” that she would face a custodial sentence. Continue Reading….
What made Constance think that she would get away with this?
The woman is a bloody fool! She should have known better, kept her head down, minded her own business and just got on with your work. But instead Britain’s first black female judge and social climber Constance wanted to show she was loyal to her wealthy and affluent friend, by lying to the police to help her.
Now look where that dumb move has got her folks – a spell at Her Majesty’s Pleasure and the proud honour of being the ‘first UK judge in living memory to be convicted of this offence’.
UPDATE: Constance Briscoe has been sentenced to 16 months in prison.
“Constance Briscoe you are the third individual to be convicted of criminal offences arising out of a saga whose origin arises from 2003 when both Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce lied about who had been driving a speeding motor vehicle.”“Although blessed with intelligence you did not have every advantage in life. However, you worked hard at school and were the first person in your family to go to university.”
“You were motivated, as was Vicky Pryce, by a joint desire to ensure the downfall of Chris Huhne.
“I’m sure that you realise only too well that this conduct strikes at the heart of our much-cherished criminal justice system.”
Briscoe will serve a longer jail term then Vicky Pryce and Chris Huhne (Both have now served their sentences).
What a sorry state of affairs and a MAJOR wake up call for Constance.
