A convicted fraudster was warned she could face jail after she admitted stealing more than £1000 from Norfolk County Council.
Rebecca Wellbelove , 32, of Brunswick Close, Dereham, admitted seven counts of theft from Norfolk County Council between April 2012 and February this year.
The charges include thefts of money amounting to more than £1000 including one charge relating to the theft of £500 and theft of a bank statement belonging to Norfolk County Council.
Norwich Crown Court was told that the latest offences put her in breach of a suspended sentence she got for fraudulently taking cash from a firm where she worked as an accountant, in Watton.
Her case was adjourned for reports but she was warned she could face prison.
Judge Stephen Holt told her that custody was “probably inevitable “
“You have pleaded guilty to serious matters,” he said.
However he said the court needed to know more about her background.
Her case was adjourned until November 6.
