The judge at Southwark Crown Court emphatically pointed out that (his ruling against Margaret Moran) was not a sentence and that the findings of the jury were not convictions as she had not had the opportunity to contradict or explain the evidence called by the prosecution.
He said while his rulings were limited to criminal proceedings, they do not affect any steps that may be taken through the civil courts to recover any money that Mrs Moran has received to which she was not entitled.
