Father jailed for cheating sons out of inheritance

Matthew Curtis of Linenhall Chambers successfully prosecuted a father who had “despicably stolen” two homes from his sons. The Defendant hid from his sons that he had divorced their late mother and gained inheritance to the value of £110,000 to which he was not entitled. The trial took place in Caernarfon Crown Court. Following a successful prosecution, Judge David Hale told the Defendant that he had “made a calculated decision to claim that you were still her husband and made a calculated decision to take over and enjoy those properties”. The Defendant denied three offences of obtaining property by deception but was convicted of all three counts receiving a prison sentence of 15 months.
