Court thief to be sentenced in October

Mon, 24 Aug 2015

A Ramsey woman who's admitted stealing £98,000 from the Isle of Man Courts of Justice will be sentenced in October.

49-year-old Katrina Surridge appeared at Douglas Courthouse on Friday where her sentencing date was set for October 14th.

The government employee, who worked in the fines office at the court, had previously pleaded guilty to three counts of theft from her workplace.

Between December 2014 and July this year she stole cash and cheques which were intended for government - she also admitted five charges of false accounting and one of falsifying records.

Deemster Birkett will sentence the case after it was ruled that it would be "wholly inappropriate" for a deemster working in the General Registry to do it.

Social enquiry reports have been requested - Surridge has been bailed in the meantime.
