By Owen Weldon     Jun 20, 2012 in Crime
A bride has been sentenced to twenty months in prison because she stole over two-hundred thousand dollars to pay for her lavish wedding.
The bride, Kirsty Lane, 30, used the money to pay for a free bar, a magician and fireworks for her wedding.
Lane ended up swindling her bosses in order to pay for a luxurious reception for her and her husband Graham Lane back in January of last year, according to The Telegraph.
According to BBC, Lane was working as a part-time accounts assistant when she transferred the money from Pure AV's bank account to her own account.
The fraud was discovered after Lane and her husband tied the knot. She ended up placing fake invoices and then making it look as if those invoices were paid, and then she placed the money into her account.
According to Daily Mail, all of the directors of the company were invited to Lane's wedding.Lane's colleagues at the time were also invited to the reception. Lane was eventually arrested before she could go to Mexico to enjoy her honeymoon.
After Lane's hearing, a representative of the company said that Lane ended up costing the company over $300,000 due to tax and VAT payments.
The representative also said that the traumatic incident has finally came to an end. He went onto say that the legal system succeeded.
