Guilty plea heard
Titahi Bay woman Susan Hagai pleaded guilty last week to stealing $1.2 million from her former employer, the Hibernian Catholic.
She was remanded by Wellington District Court judge Tom Broadmore for sentencing next month.
The 45-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of obtaining $ 1,242,750 by deception from the Hibernians, and four counts of causing a loss of $15,089 to Hoff Holdings.
Hoff Holdings, which is part-owned by former All Black Christian Cullen, runs a group of bars including Wellington’s Four Kings and Electric Avenue.
Hagai worked as an office clerk for the Hibernians, a friendly banking society, from 1994 to 2010. She worked for Hoff Holdings after leaving the Hibernians last September.
