Female exec assistant jailed for misappropriating $246K
A 47-year-old former executive assistant was jailed for nine months on Monday for misappropriating $138,000 which was meant to pay her employer's income tax.
Karen Teo Choo Hwa also logged on to her boss's Singapore Airlines Krisflyer membership account to redeem miles for two business class tickets to San Francisco worth more than $30,000.
She had pleaded guilty to criminal breach of trust for making a cheque for $138,492 payable to herself when she was employed by Take-Two Asia in Goldbell Tower along Scotts Road.
The victim was not aware that she had used the account to get tickets for herself until he found out during a routine check.
When confronted, she confessed that she had redeemed the tickets for herself and her boyfriend. Three other similar charges of criminal breach of trust involving $77,083 were taken into consideration.
She could have been jailed for up to seven years and/or fined for criminal breach of trust, and fined up to $5,000 and/or jailed for up to two years for computer misuse.
