Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. And what lesson can be learned from that? That crime actually does pay, and quite well.

    Compare and contrast. They didn't become the longest-surviving culture in human history by pissing about.
  2. seems a bit harsh 7 yrs. nonses get less than that. disgrace
  3. I agree! It seems in this country you get longer inside for embezzlement than for Murder, Rape, kiddie fiddling etc :(
  4. He'll be blagging it all the way mind you, boasting in prison, and mind you nonces are the ones who get the sh1t kicked out of them. :lol:
  5. He'd be really stupid to brag about it, and with good behaviour he'll be out in 4!! Probably less.
  6. The difference being where money is concerned you'll get a harsher sentence than any other offence. Government types hate you getting away financially!
  7. Is that because it's not lining their pockets by any chance?. :D
  8. Were his employer able to recover any of the stolen funds?

    Either way, seven years for £4m isn't that harsh - especially given the way in which he pissed it up. He'll likely be in chokey for 4 years and if he's good he'll be on his way shortly thereafter with a tag.

    On the upside, he won't be able to get a job as an accountant again!
