A woman will be sentenced in March after admitting eight counts of benefit fraud.

Kelly Hearns of Westbourne Drive in Douglas appeared before magistrates at Douglas Courthouse.

The 36 year old law firm paralegal pleaded guilty to eight counts of making false representations to obtain benefits between February 2020 and October last year.

Prosecutor Barry Swain told the hearing in total she’d wrongly claimed just over £5,200.

Magistrates bailed her to appear in court again for sentencing on March 23.
