Judge Christopher Prince said the married 35-year-old had shown no remorse for her actions and an “utter disregard verging on vindictiveness” towards her employer of 15 months.
He said the fact she had young children was not enough to stop her going to prison, adding: “Without sounding hard-hearted they are her children and when she was stealing this money she knew she may go to prison.
“It is her job to think of them more than it is my job. Good mothers do not put themselves at risk of being sent to prison by repeatedly offending.”Well said!
Mr Perkins asked for three months for his client to come up with a repayment plan and identify ways to free up cash, including moving into cheaper rented accommodation.Why? Hasn't she had long enough while awaiting trial?
Outside of court, Mr Young said: “You cannot run a business like ours without trusting people. She has shown no remorse; we’ve heard nothing from her.
“When you are 53 and know you will be working the rest of your working life, getting up at 4.30am, to pay off debts because someone has stolen from you it is a bitter pill to swallow.”Indeed it is.
