A single mother who stole from her employer to buy a bed will have to carry out 200 hours of community work.
Hakima Oudghiri of Derby Road in Douglas admitted four counts of theft when she appeared before Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes.
The court heard the 51 year old took more than £990 in cash and £2,500 in jewellery from a house where she worked as a cleaner - but was too guilt-stricken to sell the jewellery.
All of the items were recovered by police at her home.
Mrs Hughes imposed four 200-hour community service orders, to run concurrently, and ordered her to pay £125 costs.
