It’s only worth what someone is willing to pay

Thief’s house sale is hit by recession

A CAREER thief who was ordered to sell his house to pay for his crimes has been granted a reprieve by magistrates — because of the recession. He had been told he faced jail unless he paid back £50,000, which he had been ordered to raise through the sale of his house. But the 38-year-old avoided 18 months in prison because he had not been able to sell his Burnden home because of the poor state of the property market. Now, the court has agreed to give him until January to sell the house and has also agreed to accept less money in a bid to secure a sale as quickly as possible.
