How one man’s guilt made him pray for jail time for his £200k gambling fraud

Steve Ramsey was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1966. He’s part of a large close family; he’s a lifelong Newcastle United fan, and he’s a compulsive gambler.

In 2018 Steve was sentenced to 27 months in prison for defrauding his employer to the tune of nearly £200,000 to fund his addiction.

Since being released, he’s got his life back on track but still maintains the best thing he ever did was to come clean in the first place and talk to people, even though that led to imprisonment.
