Former NSW MP Daryl Maguire will face a criminal trial over allegations he conspired to commit visa fraud.

The 65-year-old was charged in 2022 with one count of conspiracy to commit an offence.

The case was committed for trial in the district court during a hearing at Sydney’s Downing Centre on Tuesday.

Maguire allegedly conspired with migration agent Maggie Sining Logan to breach the migration act between January 2013 and August 2015.

Prosecutors allege he conspired with Logan to have false or misleading documents to be furnished for official purposes in connection with non-citizens’ visas.

The former Liberal MP faces prison time or a maximum fine of $34,000.

Maguire resigned from NSW parliament in 2018 after an anti-corruption inquiry, which later exposed his secret romantic relationship with former premier Gladys Berejiklian.

There is no suggestion Berejiklian was involved in any alleged offence.

The matter is listed for arraignment on April 26.
