ACQUISITION OF CRIMINAL PROPERTY WITHIN MEANING OF S.340 PROCEEDS OF CRIME ACT 2002

A judge had been right to reject a submission of no case to answer in relation to offences of acquiring criminal property as, when a co-defendant had dishonestly transferred credit balances to a defendant’s bank account, the defendant had obtained a benefit from that criminal conduct and had therefore acquired criminal property within the meaning of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 s.340.
