"For lying" and "for having lied"?

"For lying" and "for having lied"?

I guess this is more of an English question. What is the difference between "for lying" and "for having lied"?

In this context the two forms can be used interchangeably in English without changing the sense in most cases, but you can't use use the gerund form (for +-ing) the same way in in this sort of sentence in French. Does that answer your question?
