The 38-year-old, who is now living in Halifax, pleaded guilty in May to eight different offences pertaining to the community services’ department. Rose allegedly committed fraudulent acts between July 2013 and March 2015 that amounted to a loss of over $14,000.

Rose failed to declare income while she was receiving benefits.

Her sentencing is now scheduled for the end of September.
