Window cleaner faces jail for not returning money bequeathed to him

An interesting story emerged about a window cleaner in August last year. The now retired window cleaner, Albert Pearce, inherited £300,000 cash and the house of a 98 years old customer of his, Julie Spalding, who left it all to him in her changed will after she fell out with her nephew, with Albert looking after her in her final years.

The family bitterly contest this will in court and won, as Julie had originally promised to leave everything to her nephew in her original will. Albert was ordered to hand over the money and property to the family but he refused to do so, saying he had spent it all and was now bankrupt! The whole matter went through court with Albert being threatened with jail!
