Woman accused of ripping off rugby league club

FRAUD charges against a woman accused of ripping off a Toowoomba rugby league club of thousands of dollars has again been adjourned.

Krystal Leigh Pearce, 31, had recently changed lawyers and was now to be represented by Toowoomba legal firm MacDonald Law which asked Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday for an adjournment to go through the extensive file with their client.

She is charged with 36 counts of fraud as an employee or official arising from alleged incidents during her time as an official with the Toowoomba Valleys Rugby League Football Club.

She is also charged with contravening a police direction.

Ms Pearce is accused of defrauding the football club of more than $13,000 but as yet she has not been required to enter any pleas to the charges.

She did not attend court yesterday but was represented by Jag MacDonald of MacDonald Law.

Magistrate Damian Carroll noted it was the fourth mention of the matter before the court but due to the change of legal representation granted the adjournment.

The case will be mentioned again back in the same court on August 25.
