Derby Crown Court recently heard how Zoe Marsh, 47, of Nottingham Road, Alfreton, committed the offences between 2007 and 2016.

Prosecuting solicitor John Cooper told a previous Chesterfield magistrates’ court hearing that Zoe Marsh had been involved in fraudulent activity to the tune of thousands of pounds including allegedly stealing from and exploiting her 80-year-old mother Shirley Marsh, from Shirebrook.

The case was brought to light after a relative of Zoe Marsh’s mother became suspicious money was missing from the 80-year-old’s accounts and the police were alerted.
