A MAN who stood as an MP in Coventry has been found guilty of another fraud offence.
Vincent McKee, 54, of Hanbury Place, Little Heath, Coventry, had already been found guilty of 24 counts of fraudulently taking money from students and families.
The jury returned again yesterday afternoon to find him guilty of one further similar charge.
A trial at Coventry Crown Court has heard McKee took thousands of pounds from students or parents while running a firm offering private lessons to students.
The jury will continue deliberating today on nine more fraud charges and a separate charge of perverting the course of justice.
McKee – who stood for the Lib Dems in Coventry North west in the 2010 general election – had denied all 34 charges of dishonestly obtaining nearly £30,000 from 34 clients’ accounts using their bank card details.
The charges relate to when McKee was the boss of city student tuition firms.
