Sentencing - Obtaining a money transfer by deception - Custodial sentence - Defendant trainee solicitor applying for mortgage to provide home for father - Defendant knowingly withholding fact that he already had a mortgage - Whether imprisonment appropriate.
A sentence of imprisonment was not appropriate for a defendant charged with obtaining a money transfer by deception, since the offence was a relatively unsophisticated and unsuccessful attempt to obtain money to provide a home for the defendant's father by a defendant, for whom, being a trainee solicitor, the consequences of a conviction would be serious in themselves.
