Confiscation order for benefit thief

Convicted benefit thief Adrian Callen has been back in court for a Proceeds of Crime Application (POCA) to claw back his ill-gotten gains. It was agreed Callen’s criminal benefit was actually £68,673 and his available assets of £29,542.92 were confiscated.

Judge Lambert sanctioned that, from the confiscated sum, the Department of Work and Pensions receive compensation of £23,609.92 and Bristol City Council receive £5,933.

Callen, whose main asset was the home where he lives with his son, was given six months to pay or face eight months’ prison in default.
