Gloucestershire coroner Alan Crickmore has had his bail extended after was arrested in 2011 after the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority closed his Cheltenham offices
A CORONER facing allegations of fraud, theft and money laundering has had his bail extended until the end of November.
Gloucestershire coroner Alan Crickmore, 56, was arrested in January 2011, a month after the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority closed his Cheltenham offices and began an investigation into his affairs.
The police inquiry is looking into alleged breaches of the solicitors’ code of conduct and accounting rules.
In July this year Mr Crickmore was bailed until Wednesday September 26, but police have since extended this bail until Tuesday November 27.
His deputy David Dooley, along with two assistants from other counties, has been conducting inquests at Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court in his absence.
