Top barrister and judge CONVICTED of LYING in the Chris Huhne/Vicky Price case, 1 May 2014

Post by Tony Bennett on 01.05.14 16:11

Yet more fall-out from the lies of LIberal Democrat Chris Huhne in evading his speeding fine:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-27244889

Chris Huhne also lied about man-made climate change, claiming it was proved, and has lied constantly about the 'benefits' of our E.U. membership; he was a eurofanatic zealot.

One can may be understand why Constance Briscoe lied to police to help her friend Vicky Price, now Huhne's ex-wife - after he shacked up with the bisexual Cara Trimingham.

But we can't have liars as our judges

The woman's reputation in tatters and for what?   A barrister and  part- time judge going to prison for perverting the course of justice... was it all worth it?


 There is more : documents have been passed to police which were used in evidence: that her mother had abused her in childhood... mother had sued CB for libel [ lost the claim afaik].
 A doctor has been consulted re the veracity of some letters and he has said 2 of these were not written by him.
 CB now being investigated re these.

 Video clip shows her saying that she brings dignity to the profession  [ rates herself highly I note]... she is ordinary, not posh, was not educated privately.

 Listening to this recording, I would say she is most certainly posh.

 A huge fall from grace.

I love the way Chris Huhne brands her a fantasist and liar !
But look at this
The first charge alleged that between May 2011 and October 2012 she provided police with two statements that were inaccurate and the second charge alleged she claimed an altered copy of her witness statement was correct in October 2012.

Two inaccurate statements !

Good Heavens.  Whatever next.
4th and 10th May 2007, anyone ?
Or do we assume that one of those was accurate and only one was a LIE.

4th May and TV interviews about whooshing curtains, windows, and doors
or again may we assume that one of those was accurate and the other versions of the truth were in fact Versions of a LIE.

And just think about this
The establishment has NOT covered up and protected its own,
"not in the public interest, insufficient independent evidence, contradictory statements incapable of corroboration, warning by the Bar, suspension for 6 months  . . "
NO.
The establishment went as far a going for a second trial, after the first failed, and has hammered her, high ranking and a black woman.
That alone should give people some comfort.

They were all getting on the Constance Briscoe bandwagon two or three years ago.

Here's Birmingham City Council. just as one example among many, promoting her as part of their 'Black History Month' back in 2011:

Events and Activities

Constance Briscoe
Thursday 29 September 2011, 6.30 – 8.00pm

Best selling memoir writer talks about her crime writing debut. A practising barrister and one of the first black women to sit as a judge in the UK, Constance Briscoe is the author of the bestselling memoirs Ugly and Beyond Ugly.
Inspired by her first-hand experiences in the courtroom, Constance has written her first crime novel - The Accused is a gripping, authentic debut.

It seems she's used to writing fiction!



ETA: This is now looking even worse. The BBC has now reported that:

  
"Now, a BBC investigation has learned Briscoe is facing a further criminal investigation into claims she fraudulently obtained medical documents to support her defence in a libel case brought against her by her own mother. Carmen Briscoe-Mitchell unsuccessfully attempted to sue over claims of childhood cruelty made in Briscoe's 2006 memoir, 'Ugly'..."

Worse, or perhaps better

Jailing Briscoe, judge Mr Justice Baker told her that if she and Pryce shared anything in common it was "arrogance by educated individuals who considered respect for the law was for others".

Yes, plebs, their downfall is a result of Pryce's desire for revenge.

Yes, agreed L-I-R, a woman scorned and so set on revenge did not even think of the consequences for her family (or herself) - lots of education, brains, but no common sense imo.

Constance Briscoe jailed for perverting the course of justice

Disgraced Liberal Democrat Huhne welcomes her jail sentence
57-year-old was one of the first black women to sit as a judge in the UK

By PAUL DONNELLEY
UPDATED: 00:19 GMT, 7 August 2014
A disgraced barrister and part-time judge who lied to police investigating former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne's speeding points scandal has been removed from the judiciary.
Constance Briscoe is currently serving a 16-month jail sentence for trying to pervert the course of justice over the investigation into how disgraced former MP Huhne passed speeding points to his then-wife Vicky Pryce a decade earlier.
In a statement today, a spokesman for the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office said she had been removed from judicial office.

Jailbird: Constance Briscoe is serving a 16-month jail sentence for trying to pervert the course of justice
He said: 'Miss Constance Briscoe, a Recorder and Fee-Paid Tribunal Judge of the First-Tier Health, Education and Social Care Chamber, has been removed from judicial office without further investigation by the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice following her conviction and sentence for perverting the course of justice.
'Miss Briscoe has not undertaken any judicial duties since her arrest on October 6 2012.'
Briscoe was jailed for 16 months in May after being convicted of three counts of trying to pervert the course of justice.

The 57-year-old, who was one of the first black women to sit as a judge in the UK, was jailed for twice the amount of time handed to Huhne and Pryce, after it emerged that she had helped economist Pryce, a friend and also her neighbour, to reveal information about Huhne's points-swapping to newspapers after the couple split in 2010.
The court heard that Briscoe was intent on bringing about Mr Huhne's downfall and knew how to manipulate the criminal justice system to her advantage, misleading police in her witness statements and deliberately giving them an altered copy of one of her statements.
Disgraced Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne was jailed for lying about a speeding offence
Jailing her, Mr Justice Baker told the mother of two that her conduct had struck 'at the heart of our much-cherished system of criminal justice'.
After the verdict earlier this year Huhne, who was forced to resign over the speeding points scandal, released a statement in which he described Briscoe as a 'compulsive and self-publicising fantasist', declaring: 'British justice is likely to be a lot fairer with Briscoe behind bars.'


Disbarred for lying to Police !

The further travesty is the cost to the state of the lying gruesome couple and a bent judge.

Millions!

Still, there's always their books to top up their income and massage their egos.

Briscoe's been refused leave to appeal against her conviction.

Vicky Pryce has been popping up all over the airwaves recently offering her expert advice on the Greece situation.

..probably quite right too.  Nice for Pryce to be getting in a bit of work from her TV land / media mates!!  Chrissy boy seems to be doing same?   Not bad for a pair of jailed convicted criminals!!  (on honesty offences) Chuck in a commons pass a book or three and it's all been a bit of an opportunity!

Definitely the right decision, IMO.  She has massive legal fees to pay.

Barrister Constance Briscoe refused appeal over lying to police.

Barrister Constance Briscoe has been refused permission to appeal against her conviction for lying to police in ex-cabinet minister Chris Huhne's speeding points case.

Briscoe, 57, was convicted last year of trying to pervert the course of justice and jailed for 16 months.

An Old Bailey judge said at the time the conviction marked a "personal tragedy" for her and her two children.

On Wednesday, Court of Appeal judges refused her permission to appeal.

Briscoe, once a part-time judge, claimed she had fresh expert computer forensic evidence.

(Hope she wasn't 'relying' on computer 'forensic evidence' from WayBackMachine!)

This, she said, would show there was a possible innocent explanation for differences between two witness statements she had provided and this would cast doubt on the safety of her conviction.

But Lord Justice Davis, Mr Justice Supperstone and Judge Martyn Zeidman said that no reasonable explanation had been given for the failure to produce such evidence at her trial if it was thought it would assist the defence.

"Having considered all the material before us, our conclusion is that there is no proper basis for receiving this proposed fresh evidence in the interests of justice," they said.

Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce were both jailed after she took speeding points for her then husband

"Such evidence, if relied on, could, with reasonable diligence, have been produced at trial.

"Further, and more importantly, we consider that it affords no ground for allowing the appeal," they added.

Jurors at the Old Bailey last year had been told that Briscoe helped Huhne's then wife, Vicky Pryce - her friend and neighbour - to reveal information about Huhne's points-swapping to newspapers after the couple split in 2010.

The scandal led to Huhne's resignation and subsequent prosecution.

Mr Justice Baker said Briscoe had tried to hide her role in exposing the story, adding that both she and Pryce had been motivated by "a joint desire to ensure the downfall of Chris Huhne".

Jailing her, he said: "I am only too conscious that your convictions mark a personal tragedy for both you and your children.

"You are an individual who unsurprisingly has been something of a role model to others."

The following month, Briscoe was removed from judicial office. She is now facing near-bankruptcy, the judges heard.

She was ordered to pay £3,000 costs but it will be up to the Crown to decide whether to enforce the order.
