Woman jailed over £36,000 theft from Leeds synagogue

| September 28, 2011

AN OFFICE administrator who pocketed more than £36,000 from a Jewish charitable organisation in Yorkshire has been jailed for eight months.

Susan Rudette began taking money from the United Hebrew Congregation in Shadwell Lane, Leeds, initially out of greed, to fund a lifestyle she could not afford, including a new kitchen.

But Sheffield Crown Court heard yesterday she continued when her family later faced financial pressures following the tragic death of her husband from cancer.

Rudette, 43, of Hawksnest Gardens East, Alwoodley, Leeds, admitted five charges of fraud and three of theft involving a total of £36,754 between November 2007 and April last year.

Judge Rosalind Coe QC told her there had to be an immediate jail term because of the gross breach of trust which had several aggravating features.
