Re: A legal clerk who siphoned more than £300,000 from her employers has been jailed for four years.<br />
Rachel Swettenham, from Deganwy, Conwy, admitted stealing the money, which she used to put deposits down on houses and to buy cars and a boat.<br />
Police said the 54-year-old "brazenly abused her position of trust" at the Stockport solicitors where she had worked for more than 30 years.<br />
The fraud came to light during a review of her employment and conduct.<br />
Swettenham directly transferred funds from 24 clients to her personal bank account, to her husband's account and to other clients between 2012 and 2014, Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court heard.<br />
The law firm, Gorvins, has refunded all of the money stolen from clients.
