A police officer who admitted misconduct in public office by falsely claiming to have witnessed the 'plebgate' row involving Tory MP Andrew Mitchell will be sentenced on February 6.
Pc Keith Wallis, 53, was charged after he sent an email to deputy chief whip John Randall, claiming that he had seen the incident involving other police officers in September 2012.
Mr Justice Sweeney released Wallis on unconditional bail but warned him that "all sentencing options remain open to the court".
