A man who sneaked into his ex wife’s house in Wigan every week for five years in order to steal cash from his brother-in-law has been given a 12 month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
Bernard Young admitted six counts of fraud by false representation at an earlier hearing.
Young would sneak into his ex-wife's house, take his brother-in-law's bank card and withdraw cash from a nearby ATM, returning the card straight away.
Over a six year period he stole £30,280, his brother-in-law’s life savings.
