An employee of US firm Gibson Dunn and Crutcher will face trial charged with stealing more than £33,000 from the firm in alleged false overtime claims.
Marion Carrington from Surrey appeared at City of London Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday also accused of fraudulently obtaining more than £5,000 from the firm’s petty cash account.
She was given unconditional bail and will appear at the Old Bailey for trial on 14 February.
Carrington was employed at the firm’s Temple Avenue offices in the City.
The four separate allegations are:
That between 1 January 2004 and 13 July 2007 she dishonestly obtained £3,725 by false representation from Gibson Dunn;
That between 1 January 2004 and 13 January 2007 she dishonestly obtained £10,754 by false representation;
That between 4 January 2007 and 24 January 2010 she committed fraud by false representation to the value of £1,679;
And that between 14 January 2007 and 24 January 2010 she committed fraud by false representation to the value of £22,911.
The Lawyer understands that the two higher value charges are related to allegedly bogus overtime claims and the two lower charges are related to allegations of false petty cash claims.
