The trial of a 58-year-old Suffolk woman who allegedly claimed benefits without informing the authorities that she owned a property in Spain will take place in April.
Before Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing today (Monday, December 11) was Sally Titchner, of Kirkley Park Road, Lowestoft.
She pleaded not guilty to six offences of making a dishonest representation to obtain income support, housing benefit, council tax benefit, jobseekers’ allowance and employment and support allowance by failing to declare that she owned a property in Torrevieja in Spain.
She also denied an offence of fraud by dishonestly making a false statement to Waveney District Council in respect of discretionary housing payments by failing to give the correct details of her capital.
The offences are alleged to have been committed between March 1, 2006, and April 9, 2014.
