Carl McGookin was told he’ll go to jail if he reoffends

A serial fraudster who was once on the books of Rangers conned £20,000 out of three Liverpool supporters.

At Downpatrick Crown Court last Monday, Carl McGookin escaped prison when his two-year jail sentence was suspended for three years — with Judge Geoffrey Miller QC revealing that the 31-year-old had already faced kangaroo court justice.
