Also, according to the articles, he was convicted of smuggling drugs, not dealing drugs…

And thirdly, as the lawyers are claiming poverty, surely all their assets would be stripped and sold anyway. If Mr Coulton has decided that he would like the house, surely that’s just skipping out the middleman and making restitution quicker. (And they it would cover a greater part of the debt than any foreclosure sale)

Mr. Coulton should have been deported after his sentence, not given a house.
