Somerset businessmen James McCormick has been given the maximum sentence of 10 years in jail for selling fake bob detectors.
His Honour Judge Hone told McCormick:
You have neither insight, shame or any sense of remorse. Soldiers, police forces, border customs officers and many others trusted their lives to the overpriced devices which were no more than crude plastic components with a disconnected antenna and a capability of detecting explosives no better than random chance
A confiscation hearing will be held on 12th May 2014. Outside the court a small group of Iraqi nationals gathered welcoming the sentence.
