If you've been sentenced already then how can you now avoid custody?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

judge granted me £10,000 for my personal use...as money was in the business bank account i withdraw it. According to the law i should have informed by claimants, which i did, but i didn't get any acknowledgement from them. so i withdraw £7000 first and then £3000 in second go..i gave explanation the claimants that there was no money left to run the business as judge ordered to give away all my money to either court or claimants...so i withdraw my personal money and closed the business
