An attorney-at-law charged with stealing his client’s money has been disbarred.
This morning the Court of Appeal ruled that Therold Fields could no longer practice law in Barbados.
Back in 2008, Fields was charged with stealing three sums of money from Patricia Simpson of London, England over a two-year period.
The sums included BDS$5.000, 20,000 pounds sterling in one instance and in another 112,000 pounds sterling.
The court ordered Fields to repay $BDS 601,000 with eight per cent interest from October 2008 until the judgment is satisfied.
