A Horsley woman accused of pilfering money from her funeral home employee is expected to enter a plea to an embezzlement charge in court next week.
Sarah Witt, 36, was working for Parsons Funerals at the beginning of the year when she allegedly pocketed cash and cheques belonging to the company worth a combined $1600.
Charge sheets presented to Wollongong Local Court said the alleged theft took place sometime between February 8 and March 3.
The matter was subsequently reported to police and Witt was charged in May.
She did not enter a plea when the matter first came before court on September 7 and the case was adjourned for her lawyer to enter into negotiations with police.
Witt chose not to appear in court on Tuesday during a mention of her matter, however lawyer Jordan Mechan confirmed the negotiations had been successful.
He sought a one week adjournment, telling the court the matter would be "very short" on the next occasion.
The registrar granted the adjournment.
