DISGRACED ex-MP Chris Huhne and his ex-wife Vicky Pryce have arrived at court to face possible prison sentences for perverting the course of justice over speeding points a decade ago.
Former Cabinet minister Huhne arrived at Southwark Crown Court with partner Carina Trimingham, who he left Pryce for in June 2010, while Pryce was presented with a red rose as she arrived.
Both Huhne, 58, and economist Pryce have been warned by Mr Justice Sweeney to be under no illusion about what punishment they face when they are sentenced.
The former couple were greeted by hordes of photographers and TV cameras as they arrived at court ahead of the sentencing.
Pryce was found guilty last week of perverting the course of justice by taking speeding points for then-husband Huhne in 2003.
The former energy secretary pleaded guilty on the first day of a planned joint trial last month, ending months of public denials.
Perverting the course of justice carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, with an average sentence of around 10 months.
Huhne is also facing a hefty legal bill after the Crown Prosecution Service announced plans to recoup the costs of his "sustained challenges" against the prosecution. The case has brought an end to Huhne's once-promising political career.
The offence dates back a decade to 2003 when Pryce took speeding points for her then-husband.
She tried to claim Huhne forced her into taking the points, using a defence of marital coercion, but she was convicted last week after a retrial.
