Stepdad who failed to divvy up dead partner’s estate declared bankrupt

  • A Wellington stepfather who spent his children’s inheritance including on luxury items has been declared bankrupt.

Gary Bryson Watt was declared bankrupt in High Court on Tuesday, following legal proceedings by his stepson who was fighting for the money he and his sister were entitled to.

James Roberts-Gooch and his sister Alexandra Gooch were just 16 and 14 respectively, when their mother, Anne Roberts – former private secretary to National MP Maurice Williamson – died of cancer in 2012.
