Michael Brown to face prison sentence

Michael Brown, the multi-millionaire fraudster who is being extradited to the UK, was sentenced in absentia to seven years in jail in 2008 after he was convicted of fraud. He was accused of duping his clients out of more than £40 million.

Authorities in the Dominican Republic allowed the extradition to go ahead after alleged victims of fraud in the Dominican town of Punta Cana dropped their complaints against him.
