A WOMAN who falsely obtained more than £2,500 benefits had sentence deferred until August 9 for full repayment.

Pamela McGregor, 24, of Alemoor Court, obtained £1,701 income support to which she was not entitled between April 1, 2011 and September 21, 2011, and £856 housing and Council Tax benefits to which she was not entitled between April 1, 2011 and August 21, 2011.

Jedburgh Sheriff Court heard McGregor had already made substantial repayment, and sentence was further deferred to confirm full restitution.
