Meet 74 years old Helen Drummond-Guinness from “Sussex Heights”, Brighton! She was once part of the building’s management from 2016 – 2018.
Her personal life starts with allegations of bullying from a former receptionist in the building.
She not only used the building funds to go for expensive meals at luxury restaurants but also started involving in illegal firing of two receptionists in the building, out of which the first one resulted in paying over £20,000 in compensation from the building fund. The second one was carried out just because Helen did not have a good feeling about the new receptionist’s wife.

Theft Laws in the UK
Theft laws in the UK are complicated, but the basic principles are simple to understand. These offenses are criminal, and the penalties range from unlimited fines to imprisonment for up to seven years. Most offences are triable in either a Crown Court or a magistrates court. Offenders who have not been convicted of a crime before may appeal to the High Court. However, these appeals are often unsuccessful, and the case may go to a higher court.
For most theft offences, the defendant must have acted intentionally in taking or removing the property. A prison sentence of seven years may be imposed if this person does not restore the property.
