Former Labrador West MHA Randy Collins was sentenced to 21 months in jail this morning when he appeared in court in St. John's for fraud over $5,000 and frauds on the government - part of the province's constituency allowance spending scandal.
In a June 2006 report, Auditor General John Noseworthy alleged that Collins overspent hundreds of thousands of dollars from his taxpayer-funded constituency allowance. The final tab came in at $358,598.
More details to follow.

    Hey....company for Jim. Maybe you can both share a cab when you get out in 2-3 months. Just submit an expense report to Bill for the cab fare :)
