UK MP Claudia Webbe given suspended sentence for harassment

A U.K. MP convicted of harassment after making threatening phone calls has been given a suspended sentence.

Claudia Webbe, a former Labour MP who now sits as an independent, made several calls over two years to a female friend of her partner and threatened the woman with an acid attack.

Webbe was sentenced Thursday to 10 weeks in custody, suspended for two years.

Webbe threatened to send naked images of the woman to her family and was recorded shouting at her to “get out of my relationship,” the court heard.

She was suspended from the Labour Party when she was charged last year and has served as an independent MP since then. A Labour spokesman said Webbe had been expelled from the party following the sentence on Thursday.

There is no rule that says convicted MPs are automatically disqualified. 

The MP for Leicester East has vowed to appeal her sentence, delaying the recall process. If she fails to overturn it, then a petition for a by-election will be opened in her seat.
