A former OneSteel Rockhampton manager was found to have stolen $33,571.25 over 10 months.
Kevin Glen Ohl pleaded guilty in Rockhampton Magistrates Court last week to a count of dishonestly gaining money over period between July 2012 and May 2013, The Morning Bulletin reports.
Ohl had no criminal history.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Darrell Dalton said that Ohl started a business of his own, billing OneSteel for work that was never carried out by Ohl’s business.
Ohl was sentenced to two-and-a-half years’ gaol, but this was suspended wholly for three years.
