Now he runs JaCogLaw, a specialist law firm representing British expats caught up in foreign legal systems, from Costa del Sol to Bangkok. VICE met Jason while making a documentary about his life as a reformed robber turned law firm owner. Here he talks us through an average bank robbery, and then his spectacular, and not so average, escape from custody.
