(New Port Richey, FL)  —  Setting a filing cabinet in her office on fire to get out of work a few hours early has left a Florida woman in jail.  Michelle Perrino from Pasco County was employed at the Bayonet Point Oxygen Clinic in Port Richey last May when the fire started in a filing cabinet.  Perrino entered a guilty plea to criminal mischief charges and was slapped with nine-months in jail.  The 39-year-old was also ordered to pay her old employer nearly five-thousand-dollars to cover the damages.
