Bride jailed for over $315,000 fraud for marriageJune 20th, 2012 - 11:16 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 20 (IANS) A woman has been jailed for 20 months for stealing up to 200,000 pounds (over $314,500) from her bosses to help pay for her lavish wedding.
Kirsty Lane, 30, channelled funds from her employer’s bank account into her own and her future husband’s, The Sun reported.
However, the part-time account assistant’s fraud was uncovered just days after she married near Blackpool, Lancashire, last January.
Besides paying for a lavish wedding which included a free bar, musicians, fireworks, a magician and face-painting Lane also used the cash to pay for a number of home improvements at the couple’s home, including items such as a 52″ TV, a Tag Heuer watch, an iPod and personalised car registration plates.
After she returned from honeymoon break, Lane was sent a letter from the Leyland-based business stating that she had been suspended over suspicions about her thieving.
Around 122,000 pounds went into her own account, with 70,000 pounds going into her husband’s account and a further 6,000 pounds paid into a third account.
She was sentenced at Presto Crown Court Wednesday.
