A CARLISLE woman will go on trial later this year after denying the alleged theft of around £5,600 from a charity.
Judith Thom, 41, appeared at the city’s crown court today (FRI) to face one charge.
It is alleged that she stole £5,631 belonging to the Forces Support charity between March 12 and April 9 last year.
During a brief appearance in front of Judge Peter Davies, Thom pleaded not guilty to the allegation.
It was said at a previous court hearing that Thom held a position of trust at the charity’s Carlisle outlet.
She is due to go on trial at the crown court in the week of October 2. The hearing is expected to last around two days.
In the meantime Thom, of Pennine Way, Harraby, was granted unconditional bail by the judge.
