A former customer service representative at the National Commercial Bank (NCB) and her boyfriend will have to wait until July 4 to know their fate in relation to fraud and conspiracy charges.

They are Yolandie Cunningham, 23, who was attached to the St. Ann’s Bay branch of NCB and Christopher Morris.

Cunningham, and Morris are accused of withdrawing $7 million from the accounts of NCB customers between July 2005 and 2006.

On March 11, Cunningham pleaded guilty to defrauding the bank, but claimed that she committed the offence on the advice of Morris, her boyfriend.

However, Morris who is being represented by Attorney-at-law Oswest Senior Smith said he had no knowledge of the theft and also denies being her former boyfriend.

Cunningham was to be sentenced yesterday.

However, when the case came up before Resident Magistrate Carol Edwards in the St. Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrates court, defense attorney Ernest Smith asked that the matter be postponed to a later date.

Smith who is also the Member of Parliament for South West St. Ann told the court that he was due to attend parliament and could not be available for the case.

The matter was then set for sentencing on July 4.
