Introduction

We covered the case of Edward McKenzie-Green, the Oxfam Fraud Officer who pleaded guilty to defrauding Oxfam of £64,612.58 (up from £62,857.58 as it was previously stated to be) last month.

On 27th May 2014 Mr McKenzie-Green was sentenced to 2 years and 5 months imprisonment (29 months) for this.

 

Analysis

We said that, looking at the Theft Guidelines, the starting point would be just over 3 years which would be reduced for the plea of guilty. The actual sentence would appear to be about what we predicted – if you start at just over three years and reduce it by a sixth then this would be about where we ended up.

For that reason, we would not expect any appeal to be successful. We imagine that there will be confiscation proceedings against Mr McKenzie-Green in due course.
