Douglas man sentenced for obtaining money by deception

Sat, 29 Nov 2014

A Douglas man was sentenced yesterday after he admitted to six charges of obtaining money transfers by deception.

31 year old Sean Speers took £14,500 from two men between November 2012 and October 2013 as part of a bet laying service which he ran online.

His advocate stated in court that it was a legitimate business venture that "fell to pieces" after he lost the money.

Mr Speers received a 12 months custody sentence suspended for 2 years, during which time he will be under supervision.

He was also ordered to pay a £125 contribution towards prosecution costs.
