Speaking ahead of today's sentencing, Chris Huhne said he accepted responsibility for the events that led to his prison sentence. Speaking to The Guardian, Huhne said:
I very much hoped that she (Vicky) was not going to be found guilty for the sake of the family.
Of course I do not want to go to prison. Losing freedom hurts, but I will not be the first to go to prison.
Lawmakers can be many things, but they cannot be lawbreakers.
