Payout for thief who was humiliated
Wednesday 16 February 2011
A boss who marched an employee he found stealing from his company to a police station had to pay £13,000 for "humiliating" him.
Mark Gilbert, 40, wrote himself a cheque for £845. When his employer, Simon Cremer, found out, he forced Mr Gilbert to wear a sign saying: "THIEF. I Stole £845. Am on my way to the police station." Mr Gilbert admitted the crime to police in Witham, Essex, and was let off with a caution.
In an out-of court settlement Mr Cremer paid Mr Gilbert £5,000 in damages for false imprisonment and £8,000 in costs.
