My DH's BIL has been arresetd and charged for fraud and forgery of powers of attorney. My FIL is yet again bailing DH's sis and BIL out of the quagmire therefore putting his own finances in jepoardy I have a couple of questions that would be great if could be answered so DH cna speak to his father and try to get him to see some sense before he loses all his money as he is in danger of doing (currently supporting them by paying rent, bills etc).
- FIL has given solicitor £1700 and has left his credit card details to cover further expenses. DH's sister says that her H will only appear in a magistrates court but to us £1700 seems to much for just a magistrate hearing and we are guessing that it will be moved up to crown court.
- Will there be and what should be a custodial sentence for this type of fraud, it is not the first time he has done anything like this, about 4 years ago he forged DH's signature on a £25k loan and the first we knew bout it was when the bank wanted their money back.
DH's sister seems to be living in denial, he hasn't done anything wrong, she didn't know about anything including the fact that their mortgage hasn't been paid for 3 years.
Any thoughts would be great so DH has some info to take to his brother and maybe together they can help their father.
