This story is over

A man who admitted two charges of fraud against his former employers has been warned he may face a jail sentence.

Sean Cann, 31, of Newland Street West, Lincoln, pleaded guilty to two charges of fraud on dates between February 2014 and March 2016 when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court on Monday, November 14.

The charges relate to 19 stays at Premier Inns which he charged to his employers and diverting a payment of £8,750 to himself when it should have been paid to his employer.

Cann was granted unconditional bail to appear back before the Crown Court for sentencing on December 5.

Judge John Pini QC requested a probation report on Cann and warned him: “You have pleaded guilty to both of these offences committed when you were in a position of trust with your employer.

“You must not think that in ordering a report and in granting you bail the disposal will be a non-custodial disposal. It may be. It may not be. There are no promises.”
