Another one bites the dust

At the time of the expenses scandal, I watched a rather odious performance by Jim Devine on the Channel 4 news where he made some rather absurd claims about the nature of his expenses, which to my ears sounded like an admission of guilt to a number of offences.

He has today been gaoled for 16-months by HHJ Saunders at the Old Bailey.  Considering this was a case involving a gross breach of trust and the creation of forged documents (which takes the offence beyond simply making a false claim) I think he should be pretty pleased with the sentence.
