An Auckland woman who fleeced more than $15 million from investors has been jailed for seven years and five months.
Jacqui Bradley faced 75 charges, relating to what prosecutors called a money merry-go-round run with her husband, through their company B'On Financial Services.
Bradley defrauded the money from 24 investors, some of whom viewed her as their friend.
The money was used to find private school fees, a mortgage on their Remuera home, and a bach.
Bradley's husband was also charged, but he died last year.
The defence disputes the Crown's claim that Jacqui Bradley was the mastermind behind the ponzi scheme.
