PS5k fiddle teacher dodges jail.

A TEACHER who stole PS5000 from a fund for school trips dodged jail yesterday.

Marion Anderson spent two years fiddling cash paid in by parents.

The theft was discovered at Muir Street Primary in Motherwell in September and the principal teacher was forced to quit.

She admitted embezzlement. And at Hamilton Sheriff Court yesterday, she was given 180 hours' community service and put on a 12-month supervision order.

Anderson, 52, also faces being struck off by the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

At her home in Motherwell yesterday, she refused to comment.

Her husband Henry said: "She has been through the wringer over the last few months."
