Yes I am co-operating fully with the investigation.
I offered at the time I was found out to repay. My husband and I could repay the funds misappropriated.
The only mitigating factor that I can think of is the continued stress I have been suffering since 2002 when my younger brother was tragically killed in a light aircraft accident in Australia, and the loss of my father in 2005. As a result of this my elder daughter has subsequently been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and it has at times been unbearable. There was no financial incentive as we are a fairly well off family.
They haven't said as yet if I will be charged or whether it will be dealt with internally.
I am terrified of what will happen if I do get charged.
I'm sure I can find someone to give me a character reference and to explain the stress of coming to terms with losing a family member in such circumstances.
Thank you for your help and I sincerely ***** ***** will deal with the matter internally however due to the amount involved I suspect that wont be the case.
There is no one, that I am aware of, that would be determined to make an example of me. I think that it would be hugely embarrassing for them as they are a sizeable organisation in our community.
I can only hope and pray that the route they take is to deal with this internally.
An NO there is absolutely no chance of me re offending. My lesson is clearly leaned, the very hard way.
Thank you for your advise, I feel a little more settled within myself now.
