– Assistant Chief Constable Gary Beautridge from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate
The conviction of Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce has been achieved through the thorough and steadfast investigation conducted by officers and specialist staff at Essex and Kent Police. Perverting the course of justice is a serious offence.
We hope this conviction serves as a timely reminder to motorists who try and avoid driving bans by ‘giving’ their points to others. This practice is not only unlawful, but has life changing consequences for those who get caught flouting the rules.
Vicky Pryce, the ex-wife of former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne, has been found guilty of perverting the course of justice by taking his speeding points. Vince Cable and Nick Clegg's wife have denied her claim that they knew about the points.
