JAILED: Accountant David Singer with drug and gambling addiction stole nearly £42,000 from travel firm
AN accountant with a cocaine and gambling addiction stole more than £42,000 from an Ilkley travel firm.

Bradford Crown Court heard David Singer, 47, of Windsor Avenue, Skipton, had previous convictions for similar offences – once in 1995 and another time in 1998.

He appeared before the crown court today to be sentenced, after pleading guilty at magistrates' court last month. He was jailed for two years.

Singer’s betrayal unfolded between June and December last year and came to light when his employer, the family-run Simply Groups Limited, discovered what he had been doing.


Prosecutor Carmel Pearson told the court the company was a lucrative one, enjoying a turnover of £1m in some years.

Singer earned a salary of £24,000 in his role and had access to bank accounts, bank cards, was given codes and was responsible for the payment of invoices and the day to day management of finances.

Managing director Shauna Potts became suspicious when she went in to Singer’s office and noticed how untidy it was and how many invoices there were.

Other members of staff expressed concern about him not working when he should have been.

Ms Potts challenged him about his behaviour, but Singer was able to reassure her and told her he would sort things.
