The sentencing hearing for the Staffordshire father that stole thousands of pounds from the charity fund he set up to help his son who was suffering from cancer is underway at Nottingham Crown Court.
Speaking in court, Kevin Wright's defence barrister said:
This is a unique fraud case, not a typical one. He didn't lead a lavish lifestyle to enrich himself.
His primary motive was to help others and temptation clearly got in the way because of the large amounts of money involved.
The judge responded to this defence of Wright's actions, saying:
He is not a latter day Robin Hood. I will not accept the suggestion he was trying to help other people. He was selfish and arrogant
