How can I help with this please?
I have submitted an offer.
What is the nature of the fraud?
Do you have any previous convictions?
The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes your question to theback of my list.
What was the conviction for?
OK. That is going to be considered then.
What did you get then?
Sorry, I meant what sentence did you get for the original offence?
The fact that you are repaying is always helpful.However, this is a second offence of a similar nature and it is a reasonable sum of money. You can't hide from the aggravating features.
I would expect a medium level community order though. I don't think it gets over the custodial threshold.
They will make a compensation order though to repay the overpayment.
Can I clarify anything for you?
