    Default Sean Fitzpatrick to be tried for financial misdeclarations

    Six of the charges relate to Mr FitzPatrick knowingly excluding or failing to disclose the true amount of borrowings to him or persons close to him in statements to the bank’s auditors Ernst & Young. He was also charged with six counts of failing to disclose an arrangement between Anglo Irish Bank and Irish Nationwide Building Society under which the building society loaned him money between 2002 and 2007.
    FitzPatrick sent forward for trial over Anglo-INBS loans - The Irish Times - Fri, Mar 01, 2013

    He's been served with the first book of evidence today. Next court date is March 22nd, bail has been continued. Hopefuly the trial phase of this will be swift on the part of the DPP, they've certainly had the time to investigate it.

    I thought people couldn't comment once someone had been charged

    Are there any sentencing guidelines for these charges?

    Old Boys Sentencing instruction for cases involving old boys that can't be avoided.
    "Drag out the sentancing until the accused is too old and / or infirm to serve time."

    Let's all just deal with facts and be careful what we say..we don't want to give his lawyers cause to claim he can't get a fair trial etc.

    The maximum sentence for someone convicted of this would be 5 years I believe.

    Isn't he bankrupt? is he on legal aid?

    And his punishment if found guilty?

    Fine? he is bankrupt, so he claims, so how could he pay that?
    Imprisonment? hardly fits the crime really, but due to his age it would be short and or suspended.

    So really it is a waste of time and money, can we not just exile him to Inishvickillane and sink the boat?

    Silly sideshow to satisfy the bloodlust of the proles,

    Keep them distracted from the stuff that is going on as we speak, which is much more serious!
