Court: Roger Cox’s Appeal Turned Down

March 23, 2012

The Court of Appeal has rejected the appeal by convicted money launderer Roger Cox. Mr Cox, 38, received a 5 year prison sentence last April after pleading guilty to money laundering approximately $2.2 million dollars. His friend Michelle Lindsay received four months for her part in the operation.

After the pair pleaded guilty last year a Police spokesman said, “The offences to which he pleaded guilty were identified during the course of a 3 year investigation conducted by members of the Bermuda Police Service Financial Crime Unit. The Court certified that Cox had benefitted from ‘criminal conduct’ in the amount of $2,287,856.91.”

“A Confiscation / Forfeiture order was made in the sum of $1,474,613.82. This order included the forfeiture of more than $750,000 in cash, recovered from the defendant’s home and from a safe deposit box following his arrest as well as the contents of numerous bank accounts held by the defendant and a substantial quantity of jewellery purchased by Cox during the course of his criminal activity.”

In addition, the Court of Appeal also rejected the appeal by David and Antoinette Bolden, who were found guilty on one count of misleading the Bermuda Monetary Authority last year.
