Anthony Gant

Year conviction was overturned:

Anthony Grant was a sub-postmaster who was investigated because of apparent shortfalls in his post office accounts. He admitted to inflating cash figured to hide shortfalls which appeared over two years. He pleaded guilty to sixteen counts of false accounting and was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months, and 100 hours of unpaid work. His conviction was quashed when it became clear that evidence used to convict him resulted from a faulty computer system (Horizon).
