Dani Dyer's boyfriend Sammy Kimmence sentenced to 3 years in prison
He has been sentenced to 42 months.
Dani Dyer's boyfriend Sammy Kimmence has been sentenced to three years in prison.
The Love Island winner's partner was sentenced to 42 months in prison today for engaging in a scam that robbed two people, aged 80 and 90, of £34,000 in the UK.
The victims, named as Peter Martin and Peter Haynes by the Sun, were convinced by Kimmence to let him invest their money as part of his work at investment company Equine Global Sports Limited.
Martin passed away last year, while Haynes is currently living with Alzheimer's.
The court was told that Kimmence took the two clients on after the business had gone into liquidation, claiming that he could invest their money when he could not.
Kimmence originally denied all charges against him before changing his plea. He was found guilty of five counts of fraud and sentenced today.
Prosecutor Mike Mason said: "This was a very unpleasant fraud against two men who Mr Kimmence deliberately targeted.
"He targeted them because they were old, they were vulnerable and somewhat isolated. This wasn't something he migrated into from a friendship. This was something he planned."
Kimmence and girlfriend Dyer, who won the 2018 series of Love Island with Jack Fincham, began dating before her time on the reality TV dating show.
They split up prior to the series and eventually got back together after Dyer's relationship with Fincham ended. They recently welcomed a son together.
