Kevin Wright 'manipulated sympathy of the public' - CPS

A man has been sentenced to five years in prison for stealing hundreds of thousands of pounds from children's cancer charities, including one he set up to help his own son.

Kevin Wright, 49, who lived in Devon before moving to Staffordshire, was found guilty of theft and fraud at Nottingham Crown Court last month.

Andrew West, from the Crown Prosecution Service, described Wright as "cynical and dishonest" who "manipulated the sympathy of the public".
