And if he doesn’t he gets another jail sentence
A 21-year-old who stold thousands of pounds from his elderly neighbour has been told to pay back the money pinched or face a further prison sentence.
Lisle Aylett, from Swanley, was convicted in January after admitting stealing from his neighbour.
Over a period of three months in 2011, Aylett had used his neighbour’s bank card, without permission, to withdraw a total of £7,470 which he used to fund his drug habit.
He was sentenced to 19 months imprisonment in February.
Now Maidstone Crown Court has issued a confiscation order demanding he repay £6,900.
Aylett had his home repossessed and the equity from this sale was restrained under the Proceeds of Crime Act in January 2012.
Kent Police was successful in applying for a confiscation order under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) for £6,901.55, which will now be paid back as compensation to the elderly victim and to the bank who also suffered losses.
Aylett has six months to pay the money or receive a four months imprisonment. He will be paying a further £1,745 from the proceeds of the property sale to the same elderly victim, which relates to a compensation order from 2010.
