Hairdresser admits A140 Porsche theft story

A hairdresser who lied about a �54,000 Porsche being stolen has been told that she will not be given an immediate jail term when she is sentenced next month.

Katy Littleboy, 34, of Fleetwood Avenue, Westcliff-on-Sea, near Southend, claimed the high-value car was taken in an alleged incident on the A140 at Stoke Ash, near Eye.

However, it was claimed the car was not actually stolen. She was due to go on trial at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday for offences of fraud but at the last minute entered guilty pleas.

Littleboy admitted fraud by falsely representing in November 2010 to Aviva Insurance that a Porsche had been stolen when in fact it had not, fraud by falsely representing to Porsche Financial Service between May and June 2010 that she was Laura Littleboy, fraud in September 2010 by falsely representing that she was Laura Littleboy and possession of false identity documents – a UK driving licence.

Adjourning sentence until March 8 for a pre-sentence report, Judge Peter Fenn told Littleboy that he was not going to pass an immediate prison sentence on her.
