Perrin proves no one is above the law

HEATHER Perrin had already made legal history when she became the first member of the judiciary to be convicted of a serious offence.
Now the 61-year-old former solicitor carries the extraordinary distinction of being the first to be sent to jail.
What makes Perrin's crime of deception more galling is that she attempted (as a solicitor) to dupe an elderly client, one of her closest friends, after she had been nominated by the Government to serve on the bench.
