Her sole misdemeanour

Sales assistant steals over £7000 worth of designer shoes by walking out of shop wearing them! She then proceeded to sell them on eBay.
Quote
A sales assistant at Russell and Bromley walked home from the Oxford Street store wearing 26 pairs of stolen shoes, a court heard.
Eva Jaciskova, 37, put on the expensive shoes at work and walked off in them over six months.
The Slovakian national then flogged the footwear on eBay, Southwark Crown Court heard.
Between January and June last year the mother-of-two stole shoes worth £7,363 before staff spotted the large amount of stock on the eBay account and investigated.

I assume she got the boot from her job Roll eyes

Re: Her sole misdemeanour

What I really want to know is how much she got for them on ebay.
And how much ebays cut of the stolen property amounted to.

She should have buckled down and managed solely on her wages. Smiley

Re: Her sole misdemeanour

And... why isn`t Ebay, being charged with "handling stolen goods"..  or something similar  ? ?  they should have to pay raparations to the shop... but I doubt if they will....

Re: Her sole misdemeanour

Isn't that one of the problems with employing eastern Europeans.
That a British worker may get turned down for a job because of a minor criminal record.
While a rampant kleptomaniac from abroad will get employed because her record can't be checked.
