Finance boss ordered to return £78,000 of stolen money

Thursday 28th July, 2022

A finance director who stole over £100,000 from her employer has been ordered to pay back more than £70,000.

The fraud took place between February 2012 and July 2018, whilst she was working for Technical Ex Services based in Hartlepool.

The stolen money was used to buy family holidays, clothes, shoes, taxis, and a new bathroom suite.

The fraud was described as persistent, hidden and maintained in part by her manipulation of the company’s accounting records.

Last November she pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse but avoided an immediate jail term when she was sentenced.

During the Proceeds of Crime Application hearing, Judge Christopher Smith made a compensation order for £78,034.62 that was available from the sale of a house.
