      A solicitor who stole more than £50,000 from an elderly client has been jailed for 26 months.
      Michael Rigg, of Carlton Mount, Yeadon, took money from accounts belonging to an 84-year-old family friend who suffers from dementia.
      The 60-year-old had known his victim for 30 years and stood to receive half her estate when she died.

      He should be struck off and not allowed to inherit from her.

      Discusting, justice system really does need a huge over haul and more should be done to sentence people who commit such evil crimes with more than what they get, makes them feel like it's a walk in the park and doesn't even worry them about going back and doing it again.
