Last week we met Toby Carroll, a New Zealand-born real estate analyst for HSBC currently stationed in Dubai, who'd spent the last two months in prison. Carroll had ended up there after his ex-girlfriend, Priscilla Ferreira, found him and a new girl, Danielle Spencer, in his apartment and proceeded to start slashing curtains, furniture, etc, and go after the Danielle with a knife. The police were called and all three were put in jail because in Dubai, sex outside marriage is illegal.

Today brings word that Carroll, who friends describe as as "a fun-loving party boy who was dedicated to his job, a snappy dresser who liked women but wasn't womanizer," has been released from prison. So, that's good news! Unfortunately, some other details seems to suggest things aren't going to be so great for him in the near term.

Other information that's come to light includes:

* The ex-girlfriend's full name (previously she was only identified by the first): Priscilla Ferreira, 24

* Some biographical details on Spencer: "Miss Spencer, 31, has worked in the emirate in real estate and as an investment consultant before moving to a firm that sells yachts last year. She is originally from Hull and worked as a pole-dancer before ending up in Dubai after a round-the-world trip."

* Carroll "faces charges of having sex outside marriage"

* Ferreira "angrily denied reports she had been dumped by Mr Carroll a day before she caught him in bed with Ms Spencer. She said: "We hadn’t split up, we’d had an argument. We have been seeing each other for five years and were going to get married."

* Perhaps the most terrifying of all: "Miss Spencer and Miss Ferreira became friends after being forced to share a mattress in the women's cell at Bur Dubai police station, which is meant to house 40 but regularly holds between 70 and 100 inmates."

Former Barclays Employee Sentenced To 52 Weeks In Jail

Breathe easy, friends of Bob Diamond and the guy who wrote "Anything for you, Big Boy," as a response to the request, "Can you manipulate Libor for me today when you've got a sec? Thanks a mill." In this case we speak of Rachael Claire Martin, the ex-Barlcays employee who used customer funds to pay for breast augmentations, dental work, liposuction, drugs, alcohol, shoes, and jewelry, despite initially telling authorities she covered the tricks and treats with money she earned engaging in sex for payment (an excuse anyone facing questioning for their own alleged misconduct should feel free to use. Just because one judge didn't buy it doesn't mean another won't). Mother-of-one and law graduate Rachael Martin, 24, ‘spent money like water' after getting a job with Barclays in Liskeard, Cornwall, where she was responsible for dealing with cheques. The stolen cash paid for a breast enlargement, thought to be worth £4,000, dental work worth £1,700, and liposuction, as well as nights out, drink and drugs. She has now been jailed after stealing £46,000 in just two months from her employers. Extravagances included £1,687.95 at the Windsor Place dental surgery in Liskeard, and £500 on unspecified cosmetic surgery at Harley Medical, the court heard. Martin also lavished £670 at exclusive jewellers Tiffany, and £506 on a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. When she was arrested, Martin, from St Austell in Cornwall, told police she earned money as an escort in Bristol, adding that she was ‘a common prostitute’. But the claim was a cover for her criminal behaviour, said prosecutor Iain Leadbetter. Recorder Jeremy Wright jailed Martin, who has an eight-year-old son, for 52 weeks, telling her she had demonstrated a ‘concerted, clever and serious breach of trust'.

Former Barclays Employee Is Probably Going To Jail

Before anyone takes to Twitter to give the UK a piece of her mind, though, breathe easy: the misconduct is related to funds used to pay for breast augmentations and other cosmetic enhancements and could even take some of the heat off of Bob Diamond et al, who've yet to be accused of using customer money to pay for lipo. A bank clerk stole £46,000 to fund a boob job, liposuction and hair extensions to help her achieve her dream of becoming a model. Rachael Claire Martin admitted taking the money over an eight-week period from Barclays Bank in Liskeard, Cornwall, where she worked. The 24-year-old, from St Austell, Cornwall, is thought to have spent £4,000 on breast enlargement and £1,700 on dental work, which included teeth whitening treatment. The mother of one also travelled to Bristol on wild shopping sprees - buying make up and other items before enjoying nights out on the town back at home. While working at the bank, she regularly stole relatively small sums of £2,000 and £1,000, which she siphoned into her own account. On one occasion she managed to take £6,000. She initially denied 25 separate counts of theft from the bank between September 1 and October 3 in 2010. But the prosecution charged her with just one count of stealing £46,000 over the same period at Truro Crown Court yesterday and she pleaded guilty...She will face a jail term when she returns to court in September. Police were called when the theft was realised - but she had apparently already spent most of the stolen cash on her appearance, in the hope of realising her modelling dream.
