Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:
Previously Judge Jeremy Gold QC ordered £6,000 to be frozen from her account, and she now faces court proceedings so the money can be reclaimed. [J4MB: So, not a penny more?]
Brian Shaw, defending, said his client has lost her previous good character ‘spectacularly’.
He said: ‘The trigger seems [J4MB: seems?] to have been the death of her mother, perhaps bringing up unpleasant memories from her childhood. [J4MB: perhaps?]
‘Although initially taking small amounts to pay for household bills, her expenditure increased to more expensive tastes.’ [J4MB: Her expenditure increased… BAD expenditure!]
Mr Shaw asked the judge not to impose a curfew because she has ‘not been able to confide in her husband at this point’. [J4MB: You couldn’t make this s*** up.]
