An employee who stole nearly £900 from a charity shop has escaped jail despite breaching a suspended sentence for a similar offence./facepalm
Cremin was in charge of banking the shops takings…What? Despite having a previous conviction for theft from an employer?
Defence solicitor Alan Ambridge told the court Cremin had every intention of paying the money back to the charity soon after, but she had ran (sic) into financial difficulties and didn't want her children to find out.Lovely specimen, using her children as her shield…
Mr Ambridge explained to magistrates Mary Marshall and Jim Elliot that the children's grandfather had recently died and Cremin believed news of her convictions would upset them more.It’s amazing what magistrates will swallow, isn’t it?
