A Flin Flon woman says she is remorseful after pleading guilty to bank embezzlement.
Alison Rogers authorized her lawyer, Judith Eagle, to make the following statement to the media:
“Further to the article regarding this matter in the Reminder on Friday, November 13, 2015 arising from the Reminder’s contact with Prosecutions, it should also be noted that Ms. Rogers is firmly on the path of reconciliation as evidenced by her decision of conscience nearly two years ago to initiate the ensuing investigation by firstly contacting the RCMP herself. Ms. Rogers remains remorseful for her uncharacteristic actions and for the problems that resulted for others, both legally and personally.”
Rogers faces possible jail time after pleading guilty to three counts of theft over $5,000 that occurred when she was an employee at a local bank. RCMP said the total amount stolen was more than $30,000.
Court heard that the three charges involved two accounts in a single day, Dec. 31, 2013, and theft over a period of time from the bank itself.
Rogers will be sentenced on March 10, 2016. An individual found guilty of one count of theft over $5,000 faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
