Viscount facing jail over Brexit death threat against Gina Miller | London

A viscount is facing a jail sentence after he offered money on Facebook for someone to kill Brexit campaigner Gina Miller.

He wrote the comment just four days after Gina Miller won a landmark High Court challenge against the Government last year.

Senior district judge Emma Arbuthnot previously warned him that he faces a prison sentence after he was convicted of two counts of sending menacing messages.

Gina Miller, 52, said she found his comments shocking and she felt violated.

The Guyana-born mother of three was subjected to a torrent of abuse and threats after spearheading the legal challenge which forced Theresa May to consult Parliament before beginning the formal process of leaving the EU.
