Ex-police officer Grace Gatt and accomplice Lourdes Castillo have been granted a two-year suspended sentence for four years after being found guilty of defrauding a man for €230,000, pretending to be private investigators.

The case dates back to 2004 when the victim found out about the two woman from a newspaper advertisement and was blackmailed that he would be caught sending messages to an underage girl.
