Slough Conservatives update: three convicted of electoral fraud

An update on our story from April last year:

Three men have been found guilty of charges relating to election fraud in a Berkshire town.

The counts related to an election in the Slough Central ward in May 2007 where Labour councillor Lydia Simmons lost her seat to Tory Raja Khan.

Khan, along with two others, had previously admitted the offences. Three other men were convicted by a jury. (BBC)

In addition to the three who pleaded guilty and the three who were convicted, a seventh man was cleared after the jury could not reach a verdict on him.
