Ruth Bray admitted two offences of false accounting

A former Kent Autistic Trust manager is facing jail after admitting she falsified documents relating to money belonging to two vulnerable adults.

Ruth Bray, 48, of Sunnymead Avenue, Gillingham, pleaded guilty to two offences of false accounting between August 2008 and May 2011.

Maidstone Crown Court heard she falsified accounting documents in respect of money belonging to two people.

Two charges of fraud, which Bray denied, were ordered to be left on the court file by Judge Michael Carroll.

It was not said in court how much money was involved, but Medway magistrates were told at an earlier hearing last year it amounted to almost £14,000.

Judge Carroll adjourned sentencing until the week beginning February 3 to enable the preparation of reports by the probation service.

However, he asked that all options be considered - including custody. Bray was released on bail.

The Kent Autistic Trust is a registered charity that helps and supports people with the condition and is based in High Street, Brompton.
