Kelly Brown Sentenced For Defrauding Local Business
This incident involved office administrator Kelly Brown who was sentenced to four years imprisonment for fraud after syphoning funds from a local business (her then employer) over seven and a half months between 2010 and 2011. The amount of funds that were fraudulently taken were considerable, however Ms Brown was battling a serious addiction to online shopping and gave in to temptation while working for the company.
Ms Brown allegedly created false statements to the amount of $85,000, however had paid the full amount back to the company with total restitution at $130,000, an amount far greater than that which was taken, at extreme financial hardship for the family. After already having served 6 months imprisonment at the time of sentencing, McMillan Criminal Law were able to help Ms Brown avoid any further jail time.
