MP Claudia Webbe has been suspended from Labour after being charged with harassment, the Standard understands.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced the charge against the 55-year-old, who represents Leicester East, on Monday after being passed a file of evidence by Metropolitan Police.
Ms Webbe, who has insisted she is "innocent of any wrongdoing", has been suspended from the party pending the outcome of the case.
She is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 11 to face one count of harassment of a female between September 1, 2018, and April 26, 2020.
Metropolitan Police said the accusation was made on April 25 this year and related to an alleged offence in London.
In a statement, the MP said: “I am innocent of any wrongdoing and look forward to proving this in court. I will be vigorously defending myself against these claims.”
A Labour Party spokesperson said: "It would not be appropriate to comment on an ongoing case."
