Gold Coast Women Sentenced For Fraud

Kelly Brown Sentenced For Defrauding Local Business.

This incident involved office administrator Kelly Brown who was sentenced to four years imprisonment for fraud after syphoning funds from a local business (her then employer) over seven and a half months between 2010 and 2011. The amount of fund that was fraudulently taken was considerable, however, Ms Brown was battling a serious addiction to online shopping and gave in to temptation while working for the company.

Ms Brown allegedly created false statements to the amount of $85,000, however, had paid the full amount back to the company with total restitution at $130,000, an amount far greater than that which was taken, at extreme financial hardship for the family. After already having served 6 months imprisonment at the time of sentencing, Michael McMillan Law was able to help Ms Brown avoid any further jail time.
