Man to be sentenced after admitting charity fraud

A man accused of defrauding a charity set up to help ex-service people is due to be sentenced later today.

Christopher O'Neill admitted to two fraud charges in January.

He was given a grant of £125,000 from the Welsh Government for his charity 'Forces for Good'. At a previous hearing it was alleged that he went on a spending spree gambling heavily, running up hotel bills and buying a speedboat before being caught by North Wales Police.
