A college accountant has been jailed for a year after stealing nearly £50,000
from his employers.
Over a period of nine months Jason Rushton, 33, of Papigoe in Wick, embezzled
£47,108 from Inverness College where he worked as a senior finance clerk. He
took £1,500 a week in cash earmarked as skill-seekers’ allowances for students,
Rushton’s lawyer, Craig Wood, said his client had suffered financial problems
since his wife gave birth to their first son three years ago and that he
apologises to the college and its students.
