Natalie McGarry is arrested and jailed for embezzling cash from the indy fund.
She entered a not guilty plea to three counts of embezzlement as well as one charge under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act of 2000 for failing to give police the passcode to a phone that had been confiscated from her on February 21, 2019.
On April 23, her trial at the court started. She entered a plea of guilty to two counts of embezzlement the next day, admitting to taking £21,000 from Women for Independence and £4,661 from the SNP Glasgow regional association. The rest of the charges were dismissed.
She made an attempt to withdraw her two guilty pleas on May 1. However, the sheriff determined that this was not feasible, and on June 6 she was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
On April 6, 2022, Glasgow Sheriff Court began her retrial for stealing money from two Scottish independence organizations, the Perth and Kinross Food Bank, and a nonprofit that advocates for those who have dealt with the legal system.
On May 12, everything came to an end with her being convicted guilty of stealing £25,000. McGarry was given a two-year jail term on June 30, 2022 according to her Wikipedia profile.
