A former manager at Leeds City Credit Union yesterday (Sept 4) admitted a string of thefts which netted her £12,000.
Beverley Johnson, previously known as Beverley Farmer, admitted fraudulently obtaining the cash through abusing her position of trust at her former employers.
Johnson pleaded guilty at Leeds Crown Court to a total of 16 offences between 2006 and 2009 and will now face sentencing on September 25.
She pleaded not guilty to three of the 19 charges she initially faced. The prosecution accepted the basis of Johnson’s plea, leaving those charges to lie on file.
Johnson, of Rembrandt Avenue, Tingley, spoke only to offer her pleas and no details of the offences were heard yesterday in court.
But at her first appearance at Leeds magistrates court in June, the prosecution outlined how the offences had involved money being transferred out of members’ accounts as well as unauthorised loans being processed for members, without their knowledge.
Johnson, 51, was said to have transferred money to accounts held by members of her family before ultimately being withdrawn as cash.
