Immigrant stole €13k from her work to bring son here

A Filipino national, who stole €13,000 from her employer in order to bring her mother and adopted son to Ireland, has been given a three-year suspended sentence at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Sharon Colarina (31) with an address at Cardiffsbridge Avenue, Finglas, pleaded guilty to theft and making false entries in the accounts of the Guinness Store in Dublin Airport on dates between December 2007 and February 2008. She had no previous convictions and had not come to garda attention since.

Judge Martin Nolan said Colarina's crime had represented "a gross breach of trust" because she had committed "barefaced" theft from her employer.
