Bouchard, Aspinall win in Appeals Court

Two people recently convicted in separate financial cases won victories Monday (7 November) in the Court of Appeals.

Michelle Bouchard had her 12-year prison term reduced to 10 years. The Canadian national was convicted on 25 counts related to scamming her elderly Australian companion out of around $2 million while they resided in Cayman. Prosecutors noted that more than $1 million remains unaccounted for.

Paul Aspinall’s sentence of three-and-a-half years was upheld despite the prosecution’s appeal and request for a longer term. He had pleaded guilty to stealing nearly half-a-million dollars from a client’s funds while he was a liquidator and director at Deloitte. The court noted that Mr. Aspinall had paid back the money with interest.
