Gail Sheridan: the charges

The indictment against Gail Sheridan originally alleged she had committed perjury seven times during her evidence to the Court of Session in 2006.

Those instances were reduced during the current trial, leaving two. Those were that she had testified to checking her and her husband's diaries for November 2001 and November 2002 and that the entries confirmed she had been at home overnight during all the weekends in those months, and that she had said she could recall spending those weekends with her husband. According to the charge, the entries showed she was not with her husband one of those weekends. Yesterday, those charges were dropped.
