"When Two Properties Just Isn't Enough!!!"

Benefits cheat kept quiet about inheritance

Benefits cheat kept quiet about inheritance
The case was heard in the Royal Court
A WOMAN on benefits who hid the fact that she part-owned property worth half a million pounds has been sentenced to 15 months’ jail, suspended for two years.

The Royal Court heard on Friday that the woman received income support of £27,254 despite having inherited half of her late grandmother’s house and flat at Clos des Sables, St Brelade.
The court said that the crime was so serious that she deserved jail but they suspended her sentence because she has a six-year-old daughter.

The 28-year-old mother of one admitted two counts of failing to notify Social Security of a change in circumstances between 31 January 2010 and 2 August last year and between 15 June 2010 and 2 August last year.
