This Prince Charming...
A warehouse manager who seduced a man's wife before demanding £1.4m to let him have her back has been jailed for six years by a Taunton Crown Court judge.I guess there truly is "someone for everyone" in this cold, cruel world.
Peter Blair QC told the court that in February 2007 the businessman discovered his wife had made a banker's draft payment of £50,000 from their account to Cromie's.Fortunately, sometimes that big karmic wheel sometimes slips and rolls back over the truly unworthy.
She told him she was leaving him as it quickly became apparent her affair was back on. A day later she filed a divorce petition, as Cromie prepared his blackmail plan.
He arranged a meeting with her husband two days later and outlined his demands - for £1.4m "he could have her back".
It was then the police were called.
