Former Labour MP for Bury North David Chaytor has been sentenced to 18 months imprisonment for False Accounting.

Cheating Chaytor claimed thousands of pounds of taxpayers money for IT consultancy he was never charged for, and rent on homes he and his mother owned. Far from a being a stupid mistake with the paperwork, as the defense claimed, these seem fairly quite deliberate abuses of the system. Chaytor may consider himself lucky, as he could have face up to 7 years in prison.

Labour have not been having a good time in the court recently, having also had Phil Woolas thrown out in Oldham East and Saddleworth over his campaign.

The other MPs and peers facing court over their claims over their expenses must now be seriously worried that they too will find themselves behind bars before too long.
