UK Accountant Jailed For Five Years

For stealing over GBP 400,000 to fund online gambling addiction

A Southampton accountant Kathleen Weir, also know as Kathleen Griffin, has received a five year jail sentence from the Southampton Crown Court for defrauding her employers of GBP 406,049.38 which she stole to fund her online gambling addiction.

The woman in her forty’s reportedly spent over GBP 1.2 million on online sports betting between 2009 and 2016, the BBC reports.

PC Stephen Webber of Hampshire Constabulary said: “The fact that she has nothing to show for it at the end of the day tells its own story.”
