A Bentham accountant, who is currently serving a prison sentence for his fraudulent crimes, was told at Bradford Crown Court last week that he must repay £272,729.86 or face a further three years behind bars.

Geoffrey Langdale was jailed for six years last September after a court heard how he used more than £1m of his client’s money to support his own business and make investments.

The confiscation order, secured under the Proceeds of Crime Act, allows Langdale six months to pay back the money or he will be jailed for a further three years. Once Langdale has paid all of the money back, it will be repaid proportionately to his victims as compensation.
