The prosecution brought by the Insolvency Service, originally charged Mr Bullough with a number of offences including failure to prepare and submit company records. At trial the Defendant pleaded guilty to two offences which took the matter into a lower sentencing category which was considered by the Judge, HH Judge Stead.

Although the Judge imposed a short custodial sentence of 21 months for the offences, he declined to suspend the operation of the sentence.
