Son splashed out on Liverpool FC field and escorts after stealing dad’s money

A son stole tens of thousands of pounds from his sick father and spent them on hotel escorts and a hospitality box at Liverpool Football Club.

Carl Hadfield also bought an Audi A5 with money withdrawn from his father’s bank accounts, Derby Crown Court heard.

The 49-year-old even pretended to be his father, who answered the phone when NatWest Bank called to ask questions about suspicious transactions, Derbyshire Live reports.

After Hadfield was initially accused of taking nearly £ 50,000, he went on the run to re-commit the exact same crime and take more of his father’s money.

His sister then called the police to tell them that her thieving cheat brother lived in a trailer at the foot of her parents’ garden.

Although Hadfield’s father asked that his son not be jailed in a statement about the impact of the victim, he was jailed for 20 months.

In total, he stole around £ 65,000.

Judge Jonathan Bennett said: “There has to be custody, the offenses are so serious that it would be inappropriate to suspend them.

“He was sick, spent time in the hospital and in a nursing home, and your mother was not doing well either. You threw the money away in many inappropriate ways.”

Prosecutor Rebecca Coleman said the first offenses occurred in 2017 when Hadfield’s father was hospitalized with fluid in his lungs linked to his time in the box.

Miss Coleman said in November 2017 the victim’s daughter – the defendant’s sister – found a Santander account lacking funds.

The lawyer said: “The defendant was invited to a voluntary interview and admitted that he took the money because he set up a PayPal account on his father’s behalf.

“He said he even bought a hospitality suite at the Liverpool football club, checked into an Ibis hotel and paid for escorts.

“He said he also bought an Audi A5.”

Miss Coleman said the defendant failed to appear in court following his indictment and disappeared until the second series of offenses in late 2019.

Hadfield pleaded guilty to two cases of theft and two cases of fraud.

William Bennett, who defended himself, said, “It’s a brief mitigation, he admitted everything at the police station and pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.”
