Part-time UK judge found guilty of lying to police

Posted:
A British judge has been found guilty of lying to police investigating a politician's speeding case.
   Constance Briscoe, a part-time judge and an experienced lawyer, had denied three counts of trying to pervert the course of justice in the case of disgraced ex-Cabinet minister Chris Huhne. The politician tried to pin a speeding penalty on his wife, Vicky Pryce, in 2003, but a trial last year resulted in both Huhne and Pryce jailed for perverting the course of justice.
   The 56-year-old Briscoe, who served as a witness in the probe, was accused of lying to police and falsifying documents to help the case of Pryce, a friend and neighbor.
   Briscoe has been suspended since her arrest in 2012. A judge said Thursday she will almost certainly face jail time.
