It's regarding insurance policy commission fee fraud.i worked for broker,and ppl took policies paid for couple of months but cancel it,4 are still paying.company says I made those applications up and addresses and commit fraud.i denied in magistrate court not guilty.but had to plead guilty in crown court as few of ppl I could get hold of them.i found 9 ppl,who agreed to go to court and say they took it and cancel it due to their change of circumstances.i plead guilty on basis of that few ppl are still in contact and money victim States inks not actual amount it is much less about 2600£.Judge ordered Newton hearing.i took 5 ppl with me to Newton hearing date,when prosecuted saw evidences from me he said he is happy to bargain for 5005£ rather then 8800£.my barrister said to me to accept it.so I accepted it.we went to court room,but judge was angry about abuse of position and fraud by false representation counts and she was asking for my brother who police put cleverly in their report to make it worst.my brother was also working in that company.but police never took his intrrviw or charged him for anything.but police and victim tried to make my case worse to put my brother in my case.he is not co defendant in my case.and not even on the country,he had to leave country coz of his visa issues,even before my charge date.anyhow judge ordered a pre sentence report and I met with probation officer and told her about my financial condition during the employment.and the fact that my brother is not involved in my case.and shown genuine remorse ad I have small kids and living in homeless B&B.and if I have to send prison my kids and wife would not get any place or benefits to live on as she is on immigration control,and I am getting benefits at the moment.
