Benefit Cheat Ordered To Repay Cash

A benefit cheat, who ripped-off taxpayers, has been ordered by a court to repay the cash he swindled or do time behind bars.

Laurance Harris, 60, (pictured) returned to Isleworth Crown Court for Proceeds of Crime Act proceedings.

The post-sentence hearing was necessary to calculate the defendant's criminal benefit and identify any assets he has, which can be used to pay compensation.

The court ruled Harris must pay £47,000 compensation within six months or serve twelve months imprisonment in default.
