May 17, 2019

A former St Mary's resident accused of fraud and theft against two islands businesses must complete 600 hours unpaid work and pay compensation of more than £7,300.

 

Mary-Jane Allan, 51, attended Truro Magistrates' Court on April 29th to face three charges relating to her time working for the Scillonian Club on St Mary's and the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group. She pleaded guilty to all three charges, which was taken into account in the sentencing.  

 

For stealing a laptop and a cheque for its replacement to the value of £759.96 from the Scillonian Club, she was given a community order with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement of up to 15 days and 200 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months. She must also pay compensation of £759.96.

 

Allan, of 12 Malvern Close, Warminster, also faced two charges of committing fraud - the first that she failed to disclose that she did not correctly bank cash subscriptions and a cheque to the Scillonian Club with the intention of keeping £3,566.48 for herself. She was given a community order with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement of up to 15 days. She must also undertake 200 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months and pay compensation of £3186.50.

 

The second fraud charge accused Allan of failing to disclose that she did not correctly bank cash payments to the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group, intending to make a gain of £3,397.20 for herself. She was again given a community order with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement of up to 15 days, as well as 200 hours unpaid work and a compensation order of £3397.20.
