Christmas at Home for Forster

CROOKED EX-LAWYER Kennedy Forster will spend Christmas at home after his case was delayed for two months.

The adjournment, granted at the High Court on Monday, is to allow him time to attempt to pay back the hundreds of thousands of pounds he embezzled from former clients.

Forster (54), of Thornbank House, Thornbank Road, Stranraer, pleaded guilty to 34 charges of embezzlement earlier this month. He admitted a further six offences of breaching bankruptcy rules.

He had been detained in custody after entering his guilty pleas but was released on appeal after spending a week in Barlinnie Prison The case had been deferred until Monday when he was due to be sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh.

But when Forster appeared before the Judge, Lord Emslie, his counsel asked for a further adjournment to "continue efforts to make restitution".

Forster will remain on bail after agreeing to surrendering his passport and report to Stranraer police station on a weekly basis.

He is now due to be sentenced on February 12th.
