Struck-off solicitor jailed for 12 years
A former solicitor has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for his part in a mortgage fraud which netted some £30m over four years.
Jonathan Martin Gilbert, of Penarth, South Glamorgan, was struck off the roll in 2010 in a case described by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal as ‘one of the worst’ that had come before it. His activities caused the failure of Berkshire firm Willmett, of which he was a partner.
