A Conservative MP who was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy has resigned from parliament.
Imran Ahmad Khan, who was elected MP for Wakefield, west Yorkshire, in 2019, was convicted at Southwark Crown Court three weeks ago.
Jurors heard how he forced the teenager to drink gin and tonic, dragged him upstairs, pushed him on to a bed and asked him to watch pornography before the attack at a house in Staffordshire in January 2008.
His resignation means there will be a by-election in his seat, which he won from Labour’s Mary Creagh with a majority of 3,358.
