A woman who defrauded SkyCity Hamilton of nearly $2 million has been sent to jail for seven years and eight months.
Tessa Fiona Grant, 41, pleaded guilty to 10 fraud charges related to stealing $1.98m from SkyCity between 2008 and 2013 while working as a finance manager.
Grant had also pleaded guilty in January 2016, to stealing $795,000 from Waikato Diocesan School for Girls between December 2014 and August 2015 while working as its commercial manager.
She was sentenced today by Judge Philip Connell in the Hamilton District Court.
She used the stolen money to buy two properties, building an equestrian centre, spending $68,579 on importing a horse from the UK and $55,850 on jewellery.
