Former junior minister Ivor Callely is due to be sentenced for making bogus mobile phone expenses claims.

The 56 year old with an address at St Lawrence's Road, Clontarf admits receiving over 4 thousand euro after submitting 6 fake invoices at Leinster House between 2007 and 2009.

Ivor Callely's lawyers have asked for the court to consider community service in place of a custodial sentence.

The maximum term the former Junior Minister could receive for abusing the mobile phone expenses scheme at Leinster House is ten years in prison.

The court heard he used fake invoices to claim expenses on mobile phone handsets and car kits.

But before Judge Mary Ellen Ring decides a sentence she wants to know if the former Fianna Fail politician's role as a law maker should be taken into consideration as an aggravating factor.

She has asked both the prosecution and defence to address her on the point this morning.
