Fiona Clancy from Exchange Chambers has successfully prosecuted a rogue builder for 58 Fraud offences and two Counterfeit Currency offences. The total value of the fraud was £473,166.96 over an offending period between 2019 to 2021.

Many of the victims were left with homes in a state of disrepair, without roofs during the winter months and have been adversely emotionally and financially impacted by the crime.
Adam Priestley was sentenced to 5.5 years imprisonment for the untold misery that his offending caused.
