Veronica Louise Delgado, a Halifax woman who defrauded her former employer of $80,000 to feed a gambling addiction will not be going to jail.

Delgado, 60, pleaded guilty last September inDartmouth provincial court to a charge of fraud over $5,000.

Delgado was sentenced recently by Judge Frank Hoskins, who agreed with the defence that a conditional sentence and period of probation could provide the denunciation and deterrence called for in the case and allow for the woman’s continued rehabilitation.

Hoskins imposed a conditional sentence of two years less a day, followed by three years’ probation, and granted a restitution order for $80,000.
