A PA at a company in Marylebone has been jailed for stealing more than £23,000 from her boss and defrauding his firm out of £300,000.
Angela Heim was a secretary at Hillersdon Estates and Investments Ltd in Brunswick Place, working for managing director Douglas John Green who lived in Hampstead.
The 52-year-old, from Kingsbury, north west London, was accused of transferring £300,000 from the company business accounts and into her own personal account over five years and the theft of £23,257.40 from Mr Green between March 20 and July 2014.
It was alleged that she used bank cards to withdraw the money from cashpoint machines near her home between March 20 and July 16 2014.
A judge at Blackfriars Crown Court, sitting at a Newton Hearing to establish the facts on October 26, heard how the PA, who had worked for the multi-million pound company for 13 years, was entrusted with bank cards and making payments.

She was accused of “abusing her position as personal assistant in which she was expected to safeguard and not act against Mr Green’s financial interests.”
