EWCA Crim 1841
Fines and costs imposed following convictions of procuring the execution of a valuable security by deception, namely a cheque for £1 million won as a result of the defendants cheating on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? would be upheld in the case of the first defendant as the judge had taken into account his financial circumstances with most of his debts being incurred as a result of the offence. In the case of the second defendant the judge had likely fallen into the error of taking the couple's means together which was wrong and her fines and costs would be quashed.
