Proceeds of Crime - Clarification
On 12th August in an item about the Proceeds of Crime, our reporter Dom Littlewood stated that criminals who are served a POCA (Proceeds of Crime Act) must pay back the money or face serving their entire sentence without parole. It has been brought to our attention that this is incorrect and what should have been made clear is that once a default sentence has been imposed, it must be served in full, or until such time as the Confiscation order is satisfied, whichever is earliest. However, offenders committed to prison to serve their default sentences have the right to be released from custody unconditionally after serving half of the default term where the warrant of commitment is dated on or after 4 April 2005. The One Show apologises for any confusion caused.
