Former Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O’Mara has been charged with seven counts of fraud.
South Yorkshire Police said the charges … related to expenses claims submitted to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority.
In total he faces seven counts of fraud and one count of entering into an arrangement which facilitates the acquisition, retention, use or control of criminal property by another, the force said…
Mr O’Mara took the Sheffield Hallam seat for Labour from former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg in June 2017.
He later resigned from the party and stepped down as MP at the 2019 general election.
His time as an MP was marked by accusations of homophobia and sexism, his lack of activity in Parliament for a long time and his poor record at holding constituency surgeries to help his constituents. His initial promises to stand down as an MP led to the by-election-that-wasn’t in Sheffield Hallam as in the end he only stood down at the 2019 general election.
