Kent Police's senior investigating officer said the guilty verdict of barrister Constance Briscoe showed no-one was "above the law".
If anyone should understand the importance of preserving public justice it should be Constance Briscoe.
In failing to co-operate with police, she very nearly had a detrimental impact on the convictions of two other people in relation to a historic speeding offence.
The overwhelming evidence uncovered by officers meant the jury had no choice but to find Ms Briscoe guilty. Today shows that no one is above the law and perverting the course of justice is a serious offence.
