first_imgA DONEGAL man who pocketed money from sales at his workplace lost his job of 16 years, a local court has heard.Paul Connolly, who is 44 and is from Castle Gardens, Drumboe, Stranorlar, appeared in court on two counts of theft.Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court that last year Connolly had received Stg£410 in one transaction at Fleming Engineering in St Johnston but recorded just Stg£210 of it in the sales. In another incident he had kept €50 from a sale, but didn’t record the sale and kept the money.Defence solicitor Donagh Cleary said Connolly had been a valued employee for 16 years.He said his client was under some pressure at the time and had behaved completely out of character; he had no previous convictions.“He has already paid a huge price for what he did,” said Mr Cleary.Judge Paul Kelly said Connolly had been responsible for a severe breach of trust. He had been a valued employee.“I do accept it has had a serious affect on Mr Connolly, it is clear he has remorse for his actions and accepts what he did was wrong,” said the judge.The judge applied the probation act on both charges.MAN LOST JOB OF 16 YEARS AFTER STEALING FROM BOSS was last modified: July 20th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Drumboefleming engineeringPaul ConnollySt JohnstonStranorlartheftlast_img read more
