Ex-Facia retail tycoon Stephen Hinchliffe is set to start an 18-month prison sentence later this month just weeks after walking free from court for his part in one of the country's largest ever frauds. The 53-year-old, whose retail empire at one time included 850 shops under banners such as Red or Dead, Truform, Sock Shop and Freeman Hardy Willis, was in April given a 15-month jail sentence, suspended for two years.
