A. Face. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-64512690 Quote A former MP who submitted fake expenses of £24,000 to fund his cocaine habit has been convicted of fraud. Jared O'Mara, who represented Sheffield Hallam from 2017 to 2019, was thousands of pounds in debt to a drug dealer, the trial at Leeds Crown Court was told. He submitted fraudulent invoices to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA), the body which regulates MPs' business costs and pay. O'Mara was found guilty at trial of six counts of fraud and cleared of two. The court heard O'Mara, 41, made four claims to IPSA for a total of £19,400 for services he claimed had been provided by "fictitious" organisation called Confident About Autism South Yorkshire.
