Frank Dixon, 46, of Great North Road, Highgate, pleaded guilty to false accounting charges at Harrow Crown Court, relating to offences committed between May 1997 and May 2000 on the accounts of Primal Scream, Suede and Echobelly, reported the Evening Standard.
Judge Edward Bailey said that the offences committed by Dixon were a ‘serious matter’.
‘You provided accountancy and financial management services to clients. They entrusted money to your care,’ he said.
Bailey added that as Dixon’s crimes were related to keeping his business afloat rather than to improve his lifestyle, his sentence would be shorter than it could be.
