Benefits cheat jailed for major tax fraud

Adeleke denied seven counts of cheating the taxman and money-laundering, but was convicted a second time on all charges after a jury retired for more than 10 and a half hours before returning guilty verdicts by 10-2.

Although she has been given another three year jail term, she will only be inside for a few weeks as she has already served nearly a half the original sentence.

Prosecutor Allistair Walker said that for eight years, between November 2006 and October 2014, Adeleke failed to disclose her significant income - much of it coming from the 'exclusive female escort' agency.

Investigators found that Adeleke had stolen £212,000 in unpaid Income Tax, National Insurance Contributions and tax credits payments by declaring that she had no income.

She also fraudulently claimed over £37,000 in Income Support and other state benefits, and laundered £157,000 of illicit cash.

They discovered that more than £1.2 million had passed through her bank accounts, enabling Adeleke to splash out at least £120,000 on private schools.
