Wakefield MP Imran Ahmad Khan has been expelled from the Conservative Party after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy.
Khan had denied groping the teenager at a party in Staffordshire in January 2008 but was convicted after a trial.
Southwark Crown Court heard he forced the youngster to drink gin, dragged him upstairs and asked him to watch pornography before assaulting him.
Khan, 48, has said he intends to appeal his conviction.
Following the verdict the Conservative Party said Khan, who was elected as Tory MP for Wakefield in 2019, had been “expelled with immediate effect”.
The Labour Party and the Conservative MP for Keighley, Robbie Moore, have called for Khan to resign.
The court heard that Khan had gone to the boy’s bed and “reached in and touched his legs, reaching for, or actually touching, his groin”.
The complainant, now 29, said the attack had left him “scared and shocked”.
In evidence, he said Khan had started “slow caressing” him and continued despite being asked to stop.
“His breathing was getting quite heavy and I kept pushing his hand away and pushing it back and it would keep coming,” the man said.
