The court heard he claimed nearly £120,000 in "expenses" from his mother's estate but failed to pay £29,000 worth of care home fees.
According to a Mail Online report;
The court heard that Martin had paid himself £49,143.19 of his mother’s money for time he had spent on a dispute with a Welsh NHS board, which he said should have paid her care home fees. When the NHS Board conceded the case and reimbursed the fees, Martin paid the £68,146.26 cheque to himself, ‘in part payment for the costs he had incurred.’One would be hard pressed to find a more callous and calculating attorney, who has so flagrantly abused his position of trust.
Opinion: This complacent, callous son could easily come a cropper.
It is possible that his 87-year-old Mum could outlive him. He could develop any number of illnesses before she dies including dementia.
It is a pity that the court did not name and shame the 'rat' in this case.
In court this week the judge said "The panel deputy will, for the first time in eleven years, place Sheila at the centre of the decision-making process, rather than view the preservation and enhancement of Martin’s inheritance as the paramount consideration."
Go on Sheila-have a ball and spend, spend, spend!
