Former deckchair business owner cleared of money laundering

News | Published:

FORMER deckchair concessionaire Joanne Jones has been found not guilty of four money-laundering offences.


Following a trial in the Royal Court, Jurats Jerry Ramsden and Pamela Pitman cleared the 49-year-old of concealing and converting alleged drugs profits by purchasing a house in Wales, as well as £300,000 in bonds and depositing almost £30,000 in a Welsh bank.

Ms Jones, who ran a deckchair business in St Brelade's Bay, has been in La Moye prison for the last 14 months, having already pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply and five counts related to tax evasion.
