A PROPERTY agent, jailed a year and 10 months by a district court in July for absconding with $69,500 of her client’s money, lost her appeal against conviction on Friday.
Serene Poh Kim Kheng was ordered to start her jail term next Thursday.
Poh, 35, was convicted of criminal breach of trust and sentenced by a district court on July 31.
She committed the offence soon after buying a four-room Tampines flat from Madam Ang Suan, 49.
Dismissing her appeal, Justice Choo Han Teck allowed Poh to start her jail term next week to allow her to make arrangements for an eye operastion for her mother in November.
