Sentence Confiscation order. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in allowing the defendant's appeal against a confiscation order imposed in respect of offences of running a brothel, held that an assessment of benefit from criminal conduct in previous confiscation proceedings, albeit that the sum had been an agreed figure, had to be taken for the purposes of of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 to be the defendant's benefit from general criminal conduct and a court could not go behind that agreement at a subsequent assessment of benefit, despite the prosecution's failure in the previous confiscation hearing to serve the relevant statutory notice for the assessment of extended benefit.
