$220,000 alleged fraud trial begins
A FRAUD trial of a woman charged for allegedly pilfering over $220,000 from her employer to pay her personal bills began in Rockhampton District Court this morning.
Shannon Parry is charged for one count each of fraud as an employee of a value more than $30 000 and stealing as a servant after she allegedly transferred $221,222.20 to her personal and private bank accounts when she was an employee of the complainant.
Crown Prosecutor Dean Jones told the court Parry was an employee of Zebra Wrecking Co Pty Ltd under Bowes Investments Pty Ltd between November 2010 and December 2011 when she made 151 transactions to her personal bank accounts and paid her personal bills.
The court heard Parry was a business manager at the company and had control over the finances during the time and made a sudden resignation in December 2011, "at the height of her offending".
The trial is expected to continue for three days to one week.
