Dani Dyer’s ex Sammy Kimmence to hand over designer gear to repay stolen funds
Dani Dyer's ex Sammy Kimmence will begin to repay the money that he stole from two OAP victims, after he was jailed for the crime.
Portsmouth Crown Court heard today (August 19) that the total figure he owes is £54,859.22 – £35,896.46 of that is for the five charges he had of defrauding the men, £13,863.26 of it was cash deposited in his Lloyds and Santander account, and £5,099 of it is assets in his home.
The 25-year-old has agreed to hand over two Louis Vuitton bags, a £699 personalised number plate, jewellery and other designer trainers.
The items – with three pairs of trainers making up the "vast bulk" of the money – will go towards Sammy repaying the first £5,000 that he owes.
He will have to pay Mr Haynes, 81, £1,173, and the estate of Mr Martin, who has since died, £3,926 within the next three months, according to The Sun.
The rest of the money will be repaid when he begins earning money after his release from prison.
Former Love Island champ Dani will now not have to deal with officers who would have headed to her home to audit Sammy's assets such as clothes and jewellery.
A source told publication: "As soon as his wrong-doing was exposed, he vowed to repay the money and he's relieved that he's been able to do that.
"Now he just wants to get his head down and do his time behind bars."
Sammy was jailed for three-and-a-half years at Portsmouth Crown Court for conning two pensioners out of thousands.
He reportedly called himself "an awful human being" as he sobbed at the sentencing.
The former stockbroker, who has been dumped by Dani, pretended to be a financial investor and defrauded two vulnerable victims of 80 and 90 years old.
He had convinced victims Peter Marin and Peter Haynes to allow him to invest their money for them.
They had been clients at the legitimate investment company Equine Global Sports Limited, where Sammy had worked as a senior trader.
The company placed bets on horse races on behalf of its customers, using their money.
However a court was told that Sammy had taken the clients on himself when the business had gone into liquidation, falsely claiming that he was authorised to provide the financial services.
One of the victims had been left "living on the breadline" after Sammy used the stolen cash to buy designer clothes, pay off his overdraft and holiday.
Judge Timothy Mousley QC told him as he was jailed: "You didn’t show any remorse immediately and I do not consider any remorse to be profound.
"You defrauded two men of significant sums of money, both were elderly gentlemen, neither was a wealthy man.
"Whilst these men trusted you, you used their money to fund your lifestyle."
