A 57 year old Bicester financial adviser has been sentenced to three years in jail for stealing more than £800,000 on gambling from funds he stole from a 92 year old woman and her husband.

Gary Watts was given the sentence by the Oxford Crown Court after he plead guilty to one count of theft. The defendant stole the funds from the couple during a period ranging from January 2014 to March 2015. He used the funds to gamble online, losing all of it.
