Former judge Perrin gets two years for false accounting

Former Dublin Judge Heather Perrin who is serving a prison sentence for deception of an elderly client, has been given a further two-year jail term for false accounting.

Lawyers for the 61-year-old from Lambay Court in Malahide, apologised on her behalf, and told the court she knows she should not have taken the money.

Mrs Perrin falsified an eight-page document when investigations began into her solicitor's practice.

She used money being kept in trust for a client's son to pay more than €4,000 in legal fees for a second child.
