AN employee of a Gilberdyke-based company has denied stealing £4,300 from his former employer Cristal Mobile Homes and elected a trial at Hull Crown Court.
David Rimmington, 38, of Langsett, Road, Hull, pleaded not guilty to the theft of £4,300 in cash and stealing a Dell laptop worth £2,136 in a hearing at Hull Crown Court (Thursday, March 24).
He is accused of stealing the money between July 9-15, 2015.
Crown advocate Phillip Evans told the court: “Those pleas were anticipated, given the defendant’s response to the police inquiry in interview.”
He said a two-day trial had been set for June 20.
Judge Simon Jack ordered Rimmington to stand as he told him: “Your case will now be adjourned for a trial on June 20. I will renew your bail on the same terms as before. I must tell you it is a separate offence, punishable by imprisonment, if you fail to attend for trial. If you don’t then the likelihood is it will go ahead in your absence and that would not be in your interests.”
He allowed Rimmington to walk free from court.
