Lawyer accused of stealing $86,000
A defence lawyer was accused of stealing more than $86,000 yesterday.
Nancy Vieira, 46, was charged with dishonestly obtaining a $50,000 money transfer from Kirsten Badenduck between January 6 and July 27 in 2016.
She was also charged with the theft of $7,601.06 from Ms Badenduck through unauthorised debit card transactions between August 1 and October 31 that same year - plus the theft of $28,615 from Ms Badenduck through unauthorised ATM withdrawals between August 1, 2015 and October 31, 2016.
Ms Vieira did not enter a plea as the matter must be heard in front of the Supreme Court.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released Ms Vieira, from Warwick, on $25,000 bail and adjourned the case until the December Supreme Court arraignments session.
