    so.... one of my best mates has been accused of swindling a-quarter-of-a-million pounds from the firm he worked for

    didnt know anything about this till last night and im pretty shocked and worried about the outcome.

    now i know nothing about the law and legal processes.

    £250k is alot of money. 12 individual charges of fraudulently obtaining money over a period of a year.

    he has done this. he is pleading guilty.

    is this a slap on the wrists or 10 years in jail?

    can anyone help?

    A slap on the wrist? :slap:

    He's going to jail. In this country we seem to give higher penalties for stealing money than for assault.

    Get yourself away from the man and his group, NOW

    You don't have to be a genius to work out he's going down for a while, and rightly so. :slap:

    10-15 years quite possibly. Depends how much of it he can pay back, money nowadays is often as valuable as life. And punishments reflect this

    If you want money, you got to earn it. Simple.

    Anybody who steals money and gets caught deserve everything they get.

    Come off it. :laugh:

    The thieves who stole £53m from the Securitas depot in Tonbridge were only sentenced to a maximum of 20 years, with possible release after 10 years.

    Your mate will be going away for around 3-5 years I would imagine.

    Indeed he did.

    This guy will get 18 months to 3 years, since he pleaded guilty. I wonder what he spent £250,000 on?

    Aye as many people have already said, he will be heading for jail.

    I reckon the judge could easily throw him a 5-10 year sentence for this.

    He's pleading guilty.. he won't get more than 4 at the most, although we dont know the full circumstances?

    I'd say, 36 months (3 years) will be his sentence

    gambling

    he was taking more to gamble to pay back what he'd already taken and lost.

    so, 18 months to 3 years.... which means worst case scenario there is 1.5 years on good behavior, yeah? i know you're not the judge but that sounds realistic, 10-15 yrs is abit ridiculous.
