A former magistrates' court clerk is the first person to be sentenced under the U.K. Bribery Act, after he admitted accepting a £500 bribe to "get rid" of a speeding charge. Munir Patel received three years under the Bribery Act and six years for misconduct in public office, to run concurrently, resulting in a six-year prison term.
