A SHAMED financial controller from March appeared at Peterborough Crown Court today where he pleaded guilty to stealing £195,719.53 from the firm where he worked for 12 years.
Robert Wilson, of Bronze Street, March, showed no remorse as the charge was read out to him of stealing thousands of pounds from his bosses between 31 July 2007 and 13 November 2012.
Wilson, a former financial controller with S&W Processing in Longhill Rd, March, turned up to court with family and a friend to hear the charges read out and enter his formal plea.
The 32 year-old of Bronze Street, March, stole money from his former employers over a five year period to fund a cocaine habit.
Company boss Graham Whyles and his sons Nathan, Richard and Brett and director Diane Nunn were in the public gallery to see their former employee hear the single charge of theft read out.
