David Bright who runs The Parents Voice, an organisation that offers help in family cases, has been sentenced to 12 months in prison.
Bright submitted a psychology report during a dispute earlier this year that had been compiled by his colleague and partner Claire Mann (pictured, above left).
Mann, who used her maiden name Silverstone, falsely claimed to be a clinical psychologist.
The court heard that one of the parents involved in the dispute had been ‘emotionally and financially’ affected by the case and lost contact with his children as a result.
The court heard that Bright had previously received a five-year probation order after being found guilty of money laundering in the US in 1996. Morrison said that case would not be taken into account as little information was available.
