Linda Doreen Scanlon, 55, pleaded guilty to the charges during her trial before Judge Jane Farish in the Invercargill District Court.

The charges included dishonestly using a document, namely a cheque or a computer, to obtain a pecuniary advantage between late in 2006 and the middle of 2010.

She was discharged without conviction on more than 30 charges and remanded on bail to March 18 for sentence.
