The 35-year-old solicitor and MP for Peterborough is now facing a misconduct tribunal over her conviction for perverting the course of justice.
On Friday, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) announced a decision to prosecute Ms Onasanya.
It found there was a “case to answer” over her conviction on 19th December last year.
It is alleged she failed to “uphold the proper administration of justice”, “act with integrity” or “behave in a way that maintains the trust the public places in her and the provision of legal services”.
The case will be brought before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal and are “as yet unproven”, the SRA said in a statement on its website.
At the full hearing, the SRA as the prosecuting authority, is expected to present its case to a Tribunal panel of two solicitors and a lay member, during which Ms Onasanya can challenge evidence or offer mitigation.
No date has yet been set for a hearing in central London but if the allegations are proved, Ms Onasanya could be fined, suspended from working as a solicitor or struck off.
Ms Onasanya was elected for Labour in the Cambridgeshire city in 2017 by a small majority of 607 votes.
What would you do if you knew you were innocent? In every single story, like a coin, there are two sides – now I am not legally restrained – this is mine.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
