The sentencing of a woman found guilty of stealing more than $70,000 from her boss has been adjourned.

Jenna Maree Savage, 29, was found guilty of 10 counts of theft by a person in a special relationship by Judge Robert Wolff who delivered his reserved decision in November.

Savage appeared in Tauranga District Court again this morning to face sentencing, but a call was made for a fresh probation report and reparation report.

Savage is expected to appear in court again for sentencing on April 12.


At the start of her judge-alone trial, Savage admitted a further count of the same charge relating to 15 cheques totalling $3460 which were cashed at the club's bar but never banked.

Part way through the trial she was discharged on a further count of theft and Judge Wolff discharged Savage on two further counts which collectively totalled $23,873.
