CASE STUDY

Crown Statement of Information covered only a four year period usual six years
Confiscation Order

The Crown Statement of Information covered only a four year period instead of the usual six years, and opened with "previous benefit" less amount confiscated from an earlier confiscation order.The respondent had spent some time in prison, hence the shorter period covered by the Statement, before being released in time to re-offend. Drugs amounted to some £57,000 out of total alleged proceeds of over £200,000. The case settled but the solicitors did not advise me of the final figure.
