Woman Steals Thousands From Boss, Shows Off With Lavish Wedding

Illustration for article titled Woman Steals Thousands From Boss, Shows Off With Lavish Wedding

Here's a pro tip: If you told your boss you're destitute, don't invite him to the over-the-top wedding that you paid for with money stolen from his office. Kirsty Lane of Lancashire, Britain decided it was a good idea to invite her boss, Peter Sutton, to her wedding, even though she paid for her limo, jewelry, bridesmaids dresses, and matching Ugg boots (oh boy) with money from his business accounts. Sutton began to suspect that his part-time clerk was stealing from him when he attended her wedding at country estate, complete with a harpist, magicians, a saxophone player, and fireworks. Yesterday Lane pleaded guilty to stealing $273,000 from Sutton's audio-visual firm and nearly putting him out of business. He said of the event, "It was like she was rubbing our faces in it ... I trusted her implicitly and this was how she repaid us."

Sort of aside:

It's kind of funny to me how we (as in the people in general, if you aren't "we" then set phasers to ignore) generally defended the Harry Potter wedding people (because FUCK YEA HOGWARTS FOR LIFE), but we're mercilessly making fun of the Chavs with their Uggdress.

Not saying that we're bad for this. It's just funny how taste works. Because honestly, if I had to choose between a Hogwarts wedding and an Ali G wedding, I'd go for the former any day.
