Former home help admits new charge

A former home help who has already admitted stealing money from a patient has admitted a further charge.

Sally Convery, of Drumleck Drive, pleaded guilty to stealing £700 from the patient, a woman in her 80s, between September 2010 and June 2012 at a previous court hearing.

On Friday, the 52-year-old pleaded guilty to a further charge of converting criminal property.

Defence counsel Nicola Rowntree applied for sentencing to be adjourned for reports as it was a ‘breach of trust case.’

Sentencing was adjourned until November 22 and Convery was warned to co-operate fully with Probation so a pre-sentence report is available for the court.
