False Representations Fraud in Theft From Employer Case
It was alleged that our client and another had exposed the complainant to a loss and that the offence was aggravated by being in breach of trust. The loss was around £13,000.
Our client was arrested and gave a full account of his involvement in this matter. Our client was not an employee of the company in question and accordingly, any offence (if one existed) could not properly be said to be in breach of trust.
Following the police interview he was bailed to return on a further date. Upon his return to the police station our client was charged with the offence and remanded into custody, as he was not a UK citizen and had links to other jurisdictions.
We attended court on the first occasion, and won a contested bail application on behalf of our client. Following this our client accepted a limited version of the allegations put by the prosecution and pleaded guilty after our Fraud Solicitors persuaded the prosecution to reduce the seriousness of the charges.
