Anna Colcombe, 53, police secretary, forged estranged husband’s signature in a £120,000 fraud over ‘dream’ country cottage. Suspended sentence.

Our thanks to Francis for this. An extract:

Judge Richard Twomlow said that this incident had had a “significant effect” on Mr Jones [husband] and was “sad and distressing.”

He told Colcombe she must “suffer the consequences” of her actions.

Judge Twomlow told her that if she had not pleaded guilty she would be going “straight to prison” – and suspended the 16 month prison sentence. She must also complete 200 hours unpaid work, and Judge Twomlow added she had only avoided custody “by a hair’s breadth.”

After the hearing Mr Jones praised officers from the Dyfed Powys force for their investigation.

He said: “I am extremely disappointed with the sentence.

“This has been an extremely worrying and stressful couple of years, financial decisions have had to be put on hold and solicitors costs have rocketed.”

It’s amazing how often women escape custody “by a hair’s breadth”… while men in similar circumstances very rarely do.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
