A Scottish architect has been sent to prison for 12 months after he pleaded guilty to swindling nearly £60,000 from an elderly woman's estate. Peter White, 51, a sole practitioner with a firm called Archetypes in the Borders town of Broughton, took the cash from the estate of the late Marjory Dakers-Sheriffs. It is the second time White has been found guilty of fraud.
