A FORMER ICAEW accountant jailed for fraud and theft will face a longer term if he fails to pay back his criminal proceeds in the next six months.
John Michael Prescott, a 62-year old from Skelmersdale, was jailed for four years in 2010 after defrauding a woman of £100,000, having previously been struck off by the ICAEW.
Carlisle Crown Court found he had benefited by a total of £230,000, and has paid back £30,000 in compensation to his victims, reported The News and Star. He has six months to pay back the rest or face a further 32-month sentence.
