Fugitive Fraudster Sentenced

A 72 year old fugitive who had been on the run since 2009 has been sentenced to ten years' imprisonment at Isleworth Crown Court, following his extradition from Germany. Amanda Pinto QC and Denis Barry prosecuted Mogens Hauschildt for obtaining property by deception, forgery and money laundering.  He had posed as a financial advisor to strip a family friend of her home despite the fact that she was in her late 80s and was blind.

The sentencing hearing was reported by the Telegraph.
