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'. Bank worker, 24, who stole £46,000 to fund boob job and party lifestyle told police she earned the money working as an escort [DM]
