R v CIRO D'ORSO (2012)

PUBLISHED June 15, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1407

A sentence of 21 months' imprisonment imposed following a guilty plea to fraud was upheld where the offender, who had a very poor criminal record, had taken advantage of a vulnerable single mother by fraudulently advertising a property for rent and thereby obtained a cheque by way of deposit as well as access to her personal identification documents and financial information.
