SHAUN Attwood had it all when he was a dotcom millionaire living the high life in Arizona.
But then he was busted for money laundering and drug dealing – and eventually sentenced to 9.5 years in jail.
Before his trial he spent two years on remand in Maricopa Jail – known as the toughest prison in the US. It makes Shawshank look like a holiday camp.

But after reading this, you may be left wondering whether his punishment fitted the crime.
