Bishop Wilton woman accused of spending fake notes makes crown court appearance

A WOMAN accused of spending fake £10 notes at shops around Pocklington has made her first appearance at Hull Crown Court.

Alverada Farrow, 36, is charged with conspiracy to defraud shops in Market Weighton and Pocklington together with her sister Anita Farrow over a four-day period in December last year.

Farrow, of Main Street, Bishop Wilton, appeared before Recorder Andrew Baker, QC, at Hull Crown Court last Monday.

Her barrister Richard Woolfall said the case had been overcharged and an agreement could be reached where there was no need for a trial.

Farrow made no plea at this stage as the case had been fast-tracked from Beverley Magistrates’ Court.

Recorder Baker adjourned the case for a plea and directions hearing at Hull Crown Court on Monday. Farrow was granted bail.
