A man claimed he had no idea his wife was pretending to be blind and wheelchair-bound when she scammed £1 million in benefits.
John Pomfrey, 60, said he was clueless to his wife Christina’s lies which have now landed her in prison.
On Monday, the 65-year-old grandmother, from Runcorn, Cheshire, was jailed for three years and eight months after she pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to multiple counts of fraud, false accounting and making or supplying articles for use in frauds.
She lied she was totally blind and wheelchair-bound, but surveillance by investigators showed her driving, going for a walk unaided while reading a newspaper and collecting her grandchildren from school.
Mr Pomfrey, who married Christina in 2005, told the Daily Mail: “People think I must have known what she was up to and where all the money went, but the answer to both is I don’t have a clue.
“She has destroyed my life and I cannot forgive her. She is the craftiest woman I have ever known.”
Three and a half years’ imprisonment for stealing £1,000,000 from taxpayers. And she’ll surely be out in well under three years. This isn’t a sentence to punish the crime, it’s a sentence to ENCOURAGE the crime.
