Rogue Traders presenter told his crime was 'planned and calculated'

This is not a victimless crime, it is actually a crime of stealing from the public purse. It was planned over four years and it was calculated and we consider it so serious that only a custodial sentence is appropriate - you knew exactly what you were doing. You will be sentenced to 12 weeks in prison and it will not be suspended.

– John Corben, Chairman of the bench, Bournemouth Magistrates' Court
