Solicitor who took £1 million from clients jailed

Swansea-Crown-Court Mr.Thomas was sentenced by Swansea Crown Court

 Edgar Stephen George Thomas, of  Haverfordwest law firm Steve Thomas & Co, charged hugely inflated fees to deal with probate and other issues following death – in one case charging 50 times the estimated fee – and pocketed the cash.

The 58-year-old admitted 23 counts of fraud by abuse of position and theft at Swansea Crown Court, and has been sentenced to six years imprisonment.
