R v Emily Watson

April 26, 2017

Jane Dagnall defended Emily Watson, a personal assistant who pleaded guilty to stealing £46,466 from her employer.

Manchester Crown Court heard that, over the course of a year, Ms Watson used three company credit cards to buy presents for her boyfriend including an Xbox, designer clothing and a personalised car number plate. She edited company bank statements in order to hide her crime.

Ms Watson was jailed for 18 months.

The case received coverage in the Telegraph, the Sun and the Express.
