Inverness Sheriff Court heard Sally Duncan, 40, of 16 South West High Street stole the money from John Ross Funeral Services, Grantown in just 10 days. She was originally charged with embezzling £29,975 but a plea to a reduced amount of £17,337 was accepted by the Crown yesterday. Duncan worked at the home as an administrative assistant and book keeper when she carried out the offence between March 18 and 28, 2011. Sheriff David Sutherland deferred sentence for background reports until July 1. Consideration of an application to confiscate the money under the Proceeds of Crime Act was continued to the same date.
