Businessman jailed for fraud; BRITAIN TODAY.

A British businessman has been sentenced to four years in jail by a US court over a PS652,000 expenses fraud, officials said yesterday.

Paul Dunham, 59, was sentenced for one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one of money laundering over a scheme in which he and his wife Sandra used fraudulent expenses claims to pay for a time share in Barbados, luxury bedding for their home, a dog sofa and other personal expenses, the US Justice Department said.

Michael Evans, Mr Dunham's solicitor, said 11 other charges were dismissed against him at the Maryland District Court in Greenbelt as part of a plea deal.

Mr Evans added that US prosecutors had agreed that Mr Dunham could serve his sentence in the UK.
