Heather McCarthy was spared from being sent to custody last year when she told the court she had a 10-month-old baby at home.
And the 33-year-old was instead given an eight month suspended sentence for defrauding the company she worked for of thousands of pounds.
But, wait! There's more!
The judge who gave her a suspended sentence said he had taken McCarthy at her word, not believing anyone "would be so brazenly dishonest".
Ummm, I think you're in the wrong job, aren't you?
But after her claims were found to be untrue, the same judge has now jailed her for eight months after McCarthy admitted being in contempt of court.
Hang on! She had an eight month sentence - suspended - for the first crime. Shouldn't that too be activated?
Judge Paul Lawton told her: "It was an outrageous untruth in the face of the court, and it evidences a willingness by you to lie whatever the circumstances, and whatever the potential consequences.
"How you thought you would not be found out is beyond me."
Lots of things seem to be beyond you. I know that's not unusual in our unfit-for-purpose system, but come on!
