Clerk receives suspended sentence

A suspended sentence was handed down in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court recently, to an accounting clerk, who reportedly pilfered money from her employers.

Kamesha Douglas, 30, has been charged with larceny as a servant.

The court heard that between April 23 and May 30, this year, Douglas stole the sum of $19,082, 17 from her employers, a medical establishment.

In court, Douglas expressed sorrow at her actions and offered to make full restitution, which she was allowed.

However, Senior Resident Magistrate (RM) Judith Pusey was of the opinion that Douglas should be sent to prison.

The RM then gave her a sentence of nine months suspended for three years.
