Moral apex: Charged in 2010 with bigamy; accused of marrying Pakistani woman — whom he reportedly met on an Internet dating site — while still married to first wife and mother of his children. Second wife left him after getting wind of first marriage.
Dumb defense: Reportedly said “he and his first wife took part in a religious ceremony but were not married by law as they never went through with the civil ceremony.” Has insisted since day one that situation is “a private matter.”
Ultimately: After claiming innocence for two years and vowing to clear name, finally pleaded guilty April 17, 2012.
Sentencing: Scheduled for May 18, 2012 — 15 days after his council term ends.
Interim justice: Upon news of the bigamy charge, was forced out of the Conservative (Tory) Party.
Suggested Quran reading for Mr. Choudhry: Sorry, there isn’t one. Traditional Islam allows a man four wives, as long as he can take care of them all.
