Judge makes 'Lotto order' against fraudster Jamie Hutchinson, who stole from quadriplegic Lynn Hall, 70, of Keighley


A CARER ordered to pay back only £10 after fleecing £16,000 from his bed-bound grandmother will have to refund her in full if he comes into money such as a lottery win, Bradford Crown Court heard.

Jamie Hutchinson, 20, was locked up for 18 months in March this year for defrauding quadriplegic Lynn Hall, 70, of Keighley, while using her bank card to do her shopping.


Hutchinson was out of custody when he returned to the court yesterday for a confiscation hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act.


Mark Brookes, for the Crown, said Hutchinson's benefit from the fraud was agreed at £16,635. His available assets were £10, to be paid in compensation to his grandmother.

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, was told there was no more money to be got from Hutchinson.

"There must have been a thorough investigation but the public sometimes finds these orders hard to understand," he said.

Stephen Wood, representing Hutchinson, told the court: "It is what we used to call 'a Littlewoods order'."

If Hutchinson wins the pools, or gains any other cash windfall, financial investigators will ensure his grandmother is repaid in full.

"I think we will call it 'a Lotto order'," Judge Durham Hall said.
