James Sutherland and Jack Flader

James Sutherland and Jack Flader were acquitted of a money laundering offence by a jury at Southwark Crown Court, on 17 March 2016. Both were found not guilty of one count under Section 328 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 following a nine week trial.

This was the last in a series of three trials centred on boiler room fraud – nine convictions were obtained as a result of the earlier trials in 2013 and 2014. This last trial focused on those alleged to have laundered the proceeds of the earlier fraud.
