Ricky George is facing a prison sentence for ‘serious money-laundering about a fake house sale’ which caused the victim to lose £250,000.
The former Hereford United player, who scored against Newcastle in that famous FA Cup game, was convicted of the offence at St Albans court two weeks ago.
According to iNews, George used his son Alan to receive £120,000 of the stolen money. Another £110,000 was withdrawn in cash.
The trial was originally reported by ‘my local news’ but no connection was made to George being a former Hereford player at the time.
Adam George, aged 40, of Burleigh Road, St Albans, and his father Richard George, aged 72, of Hadley Grove, Barnet, laundered money through their bank accounts, which were the proceeds of a fraudulent house sale. A third man, Charles Jogi, was also convicted for the same offence.
Adam George received £120,000 into a business account from his father, Richard George. The money was then laundered through his own bank account and that of his father and Charles Jogi, his father’s friend. The money was part of a fraud, in which a house was sold for £250,000 without the knowledge or consent of the unwitting owner.
