A former Lloyds TSB financial adviser, jailed earlier this year for stealing money from his children's school and clients, has been ordered to pay back his gains.
Andrew Bartlett, of Malvern, Worcestershire, was sentenced to 18 months in July for taking £51,000 from two clients and £87,500 from accounts at Dyson Perrins CE School in Malvern, where his children had attended and where he was a governor and chairman of the finance committee.
He appeared before Gloucester Crown Court on Monday and was told that his benefit from the crimes had been assessed at £12,000.
He was also considered to have sufficient assets to pay the amount in full, the Malvern Gazette reports.
Although the total defrauded was much higher, most of it has already been repaid by Bartlett himself and by the bank, through his pension fund.
The 48-year-old is expected to be released on parole in three weeks time, although he will have to serve another eight-month jail term if he does not repay the money within six months.
