Theft total $160,000

AN ALDERSHOT woman convicted last month of stealing from her employer did not plead guilty to stealing $222,000.

Annette Maree Belden’s legal representative from Suthers Lawyers contacted the Chronicle yesterday to clarify the amount Belden pleaded guilty to stealing.

“Belden entered a plea of guilty to stealing $161,531,” lawyer Travis George said.

“In addition, it is our understanding that the complainants agreed to this value as being correct for the sake of sentencing.”

Belden pleaded guilty in the Brisbane District Court to stealing as a servant from S and E Campbell, an Aldershot trucking business.

She was sentenced to a four-and-a-half year jail term to be suspended after serving 18 months.
