Perrin appeal fails

Mixed news for former Billabong boss Matthew Perrin today.

He's had six months taken off his prison sentence, but lost an appeal against his fraud conviction.

Perrin was jailed at the start of the year for forging signatures to scam $13.5 million from the Commonwealth Bank.

The 44-year-old can apply for parole in June 2020.
