A BELFAST financier could be jailed for 20 years in the US after pleading guilty to a $164million (£123million) fraud.

Roger 'Rocket' Knox, an ex-Army officer and former Campbell College pupil, is to be sentenced for the 'pump and dump' shares scam in Boston on September 30.

The multi-millionaire was released from a US prison in April, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, and has been allowed to remain under house arrest.
