Delighted Client | Reading Crown Court | Kangs Financial Crime Defence Solicitors


As previously reported, Kangs Solicitors have been defending a company director charged, alongside others, with conspiracy to defraud and money laundering.

The value of the fraud was in excess of £1.2million.

How We Assisted | Kangs Criminal Defence Preparation Team

  • Detailed negotiations were successfully conducted with the Prosecution with the result that they decided not to pursue the allegations of fraud, to which others had pleaded guilty.
  • Our client pleaded guilty to money laundering on the basis that he had received less than £40,000.
  • We interviewed a number of people who provided character references and collated important documentation for use in mitigation.

The Sentence Hearing | Kangs Criminal Hearing Solicitors

  • At the Hearing all of the material collated and documents prepared on behalf of our client was presented to the sentencing Judge.
  • Counsel, who had been selected and instructed by Kangs Solicitors, presented a well prepared and detailed mitigation on behalf of our client.
  • The Judge handed down to our client a suspended sentence and for which he was absolutely delighted as, not only did he retain his freedom but his business can continue to operate, thereby saving the jobs of at least twenty employees.
