A jury today returned a guilty verdict in the $17.4 million Dual fraud trial involving the underwriting agency’s former national claims manager Josie Gonzalez and her husband Alvaro.

The couple was found guilty of 14 charges of obtaining a financial advantage by deception.

The jury reached the unanimous verdict after the 12 jurors began deliberations yesterday morning at the County Court of Victoria in Melbourne. The couple has been on trial since mid June.

They were taken into custody after the verdict was read out before Judge Paul Lacava. The plea hearing has been set for August 28.
