The start of the article:
A banker who stole more than £30,000 from sick and elderly customers has walked free after a judge decided her dishonesty was a ‘cry for help’. Victoria Earle targeted the accounts of four vulnerable customers at her branch of the Lloyds TSB bank.
Three of the personal banker’s victims had Alzheimer’s disease and one was blind and deaf. One of the customers was nearly 70 and the rest were in their 80s. But the court heard she was getting over the loss of a grandparent and was finding her work stressful.
The judge, Mr Recorder Edward Bindloss, said a suspended jail sentence and the loss of her good name was adequate punishment.
