The 23-year-old might still have lived at home, he made a cool estimated £1.1million ($1.9m). It isn't clear where he hid those funds, although part of it was spent on a lavish lifestyle with Yves Saint Laurant clothing (£12,000 - $20,600) and helicopter lessons (£16,000 - $27,500). Both are things that have little use in a jail cell however.
