A FORMER MCN photographer has received a suspended prison sentence after falsely claiming £23,000-worth of equipment belonging to the newspaper had been stolen.

Ian Stewart Jubb, whose Twitter account lists his current position as Director at the website Motofire, was accused of fraud against Motor Cycle News publisher Bauer Media.

The 35-year-old had claimed the kit had been stolen in a burglary in Stamford, Lincolnshire, on September 3 last year.

On conviction, Jubb, of Navenby in Lincolnshire, was handed a 24-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

He was also ordered to do 100 hours’ unpaid work, fined £615 and told to pay £2,000 compensation.

Jubb had denied a charge of fraud with the intention of making £23,000 for himself. He had also denied wasting police time by knowingly making a false report of a burglary.

Strange it's not mentioned on the MCN website either..?
Still nice to know Bauer Media can adopt the moral high ground when it takes them more 120 days to pay a 30-day account...

So glad I left the industry behind.
