An accounts assistant who embezzled £1,210 from Shetland Triathlon Club while treasurer of the club had sentence deferred at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
The court heard that Lee Moulder, 23, of Firpark Court, Glasgow, who did not appear in court, had run up debts and the money was available to him. The offence took place between 23rd July and 10th September last year, and represented a “significant total” of the small club’s funds. Moulder has since repaid the amount in full. Defence solicitor Tommy Allan said the events had been “fairly disastrous” for Moulder, who had lost his job as a result and now worked as a leisure centre assistant.
Sheriff Graeme Napier deferred sentence until 9th September for Moulder to be of good behaviour.
