The woman was also given a two-year suspended sentence.

When first arrested in 2011, she admitted to taking between 10 and 20,000 francs a month from a client’s account by forging payment documents.

She was allowed to leave court after the sentencing as she had already spent a year in jail ahead of the trial.
