Adam Clayton's Ex-Assistant Gets 7-Year Jail Term

@U2, July 06, 2012

Carol Hawkins, Adam Clayton's former personal assistant, was sentenced to seven years in jail today for embazzling (EU)2.8 million from him over a four-year period. Hawkins was convicted last week on 181 counts.

According to the Irish Independent, Judge Patrick McCartan had some complimentary words about Adam during today's sentencing:

"Mr. Clayton seems to this court from what has emerged from this case to be a good employer, a person who was capable of showing care and compassion, who gave the accused a second chance."

The judge ordered that funds from the sale of an apartment in New York City that Hawkins bought be used to repay some of the money she stole.

Adam was not in court today for the sentencing.
