Former HSBC Worker Accused Of Emptying Couple's Bank Account

Charged: Maura Kealy
A woman accused of stealing over £70,000 from the bank account of a couple she knew has appeared in court for the first time.

Maura Kealy, 56, of St. Peter's Place, Arklow, County Wicklow, Republic of Ireland - an ex-HSBC employee - indicated a not guilty plea.

She appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates Court, where jurisdiction was declined.

Kealy was arrested at her former home in Brentford, West London on May 9, 2013 and denied any dishonesty when questioned.

She was interviewed again on May 23 this year.

She was bailed unconditionally to appear at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court for a preliminary hearing, which will take place in the new year.

Kealy is charged with stealing £71,701 between June 26, 2001 and September 21, 2010 from a HSBC bank account belonging to Irish couple Christopher Behan and Bridget Behan.
