AN Ipswich man is facing jail for stealing more than £7,000.
Alan Walker, 60, of Willoughby Road, pleaded guilty to eight counts of obtaining money be deception between December 2001 and April 2002.
A total of £7,379 was swindled by Walker who was paid the money for false invoices.
Ipswich Crown Court heard that Walker's actions were a "breach of trust".
Jeremy Dugdale, mitigating, said his client realised he faced a prison sentence but said his client was in poor health and a pre-sentence report would help the court decide on the length of sentence.
The court heard that Walker had a previous conviction for a similar offence.
