Dunscar accountant jailed for two years

Michael
Lee
, 59, an accountant from Shorefield Mount, Dunscar has been jailed for
two years after using money he was supposed to bank to fund an infatuation with
a prostitute.

During a five-year ‘relationship’ Lee stole £120,000 from Alec’s Three Piece
Suites Warehouse in Great Lever and also used £161,000 of his savings on the
woman, as well as £60,000 he borrowed on credit cards, the

He covered his crimes by forging the accounts but eventually handed himself
in to police in January this year after a colleague’s wage cheque from the
company had bounced.
