Jailed mother's sentence 'reflects offences'

Twenty months in prison handed down

Police say a woman from Peel's 'abuse of trust' has had a negative impact on her family - but maintain her punishment was proportionate.

Thirty-two-year-old Fenella Carter was on Tuesday jailed for 20 months, after admitting to stealing over £33,000 from her uncle's law firm.
