A former charity finance manager has avoided prison after admitting stealing more than £10,000 from the charity she worked for.
Henna Hussain, 30, of Linthorpe in Middlesbrough, pleaded guilty in January to one charge of defrauding £10,331.34 from the charity Main – Taking Autism Personally between 1 June and 14 September 2016.
At Teesside Crown Court on Friday she was given a 15-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
According to the Charity Commission website, Main, which is based in Middlesbrough, had an income of £438,140 and expenditure of £369,289 for the year ending 31 March 2016.
No one at the charity was available for comment on the case.
