Accountant pleads guilty to multiple charges related to fraud and misrepresentation

Published by GBC News

A woman facing multiple charges related to fraud, false accounting and false representation has pleaded guilty to all counts and will be sentenced next month.

Wendy Simpson had previously pleaded not guilty to allegations that she made 54 transfers from her company’s account into her own and misled both her employer and clients.

She was accused of defrauding her previous employer of close to £44,000, with the offences taking place between August 2021 and April this year.

Simpson has been on remand since July and will appear in Supreme Court for sentencing on December 14th after the Magistrates’ Court declined jurisdiction.
