Criminal Lawyers

Proceeds of Crime

Paul Martin and Co Criminal Lawyers, Romford Essex have been providing representation to those faced with proceeds of crime. Alongside Serious Fraud, Proceeds of Crime is often a linked field of prosecution.

In offences of fraud the defendants usually face counterpart allegations brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, particularly Sections 327, 328 and 329 of the Act relating to the handling of the proceeds of the main offence, i.e. the fraud itself.

In addition however, POCA proceedings arise when a defendant has been convicted of an offence which involves a financial gain on the part of the defendant as against, for example, an offence of violence.

These are proceedings that are designed to ensure that a convicted person does not profit from his criminal acts and gives the State a mechanism by which a convicted person's assets can be confiscated to both compensate victims and ensure that there is no gain in the crime committed by the defendant.
