London, April 6 (IANS) An elderly Briton who spent over 400,000 pounds (about $635,000) on prostitutes has been jailed as he resorted to stealing to support his sex-addiction.
Deryck Green, 66, who was employed as Postal clerk, stole 28,000 pounds from the sub-post office where he worked and which his wife managed. He spent it on prostitutes costing up to 160 pounds-an-hour, the Daily Mail reported.
Green turned to crime to fund his addiction after blowing around 305,000 pounds after selling his home for hookers and ended up another 100,000 pounds in debt before being caught. He covered up his misdemeanours by falsifying his accounts.
The Guilford Crown Court heard that the self-confessed sex addict, of Longbridge Deverill near Warminster, Wiltshire county, helped himself to a total of 28,000 pounds to fund his lifestyle.
Green was jailed for 17 months after being found guilty of theft and false accounting, following a week-long trial.
He had even attempted to kill himself by taking sleeping pills before he was sentenced leaving a suicide note titled "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young".
