MP Claudia Webbe has lost her appeal at Southwark Crown Court against her conviction for stalking a love rival.
The 57-year-old, who is the MP for Leicester East, was found guilty on October 13 of stalking a woman and sentenced to 10 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for two years.
Webbe now sits as an independent MP after the Labor Party expelled her following her guilty verdict.
The deputy was found guilty of targeting Michelle Merrit, 59, between September 2018 and April 2020.
Prosecutors said the 18-month harassment campaign was driven by ‘obsession’ and ‘jealousy’ over her boyfriend Lester Thomas’ relationship with executive assistant Ms Merritt.
