Ryan Edwin Bryce-Richards (55) appeared in the Royal Court yesterday and was remanded in custody pending the sentencing by the Superior Number on 10 October.
Until now no details of the separate cases against him and his wife could be revealed because of reporting restrictions, but these were lifted during yesterday’s short hearing.
Bryce-Richards’s wife Christine (44) was convicted by an Assize jury of fraud last November and is serving a sentence of a total of 14 years.
She was given a seven-year sentence by the Royal Court and at a later hearing another seven years were added.
The second hearing was in respect of the confiscation of assets she had fraudulently obtained.
Her husband had to be extradited from Spain to face the charge which he admitted yesterday.
The assize jury that tried Christine Bryce-Richards, who was a trust company manager, heard that she befriended a rich elderly couple in Alderney – both of whom have now died.
She was supposed to look after their affairs but spent their money on her own business, a flat in Majorca and refurbishing her boat.
