    Cheshire loan shark Paul Nicholson stripped of 1m

    BBC News - Cheshire loan shark Paul Nicholson stripped of 1m

    A loan shark who raped, blackmailed and assaulted his poverty-stricken clients has been stripped of his assets.
    Paul Nicholson, who swindled millions of pounds from hundreds of people in Cheshire, had nearly 1m taken from him during a proceeds of crime case at Warrington Crown Court earlier.
    One of his victims, 22-year-old Brian Shields, killed himself after a loan of 300 shot up to 3,000 in 12 weeks.
    He gave many of his female victims the option to pay "in kind" and perform sexual acts for him if they could not keep up with their spiralling debts.
    Got to love asset confiscation making sure crime doesn't pay.

    The beauty is it all takes place in civil court where we only have to show on the "balance of probability" as opposed to "beyond reasonable doubt".
    Stops all the stupid little defence games.
    Love it.
    the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.
