Erin O'Connor's former assistant has been spared jail after she was sentenced to community service for defrauding the British supermodel out of $19,000 (£12,000).
The catwalk star, who boasts a reported $19 million (£12 million) fortune, became suspicious of Michelle Knox-Brown after noticing her extravagant spending. It was later revealed that the assistant had used the star's credit cards to fund a lavish lifestyle, paying for foreign holidays and refurbishments to her home.
Knox-Brown admitted two counts of fraud in March (11) and was warned she faced a custodial sentence, but was spared jail on Tuesday (03May11) when a judge at Kingston Crown Court in Surrey, England handed her 200 hours of unpaid community work and a 40-week suspended sentence.
She was also ordered to pay back $3,200 (£2,000) to the model within one month and return another $9,600 (£6,000) over the next two years.
The live album is set for released in November.
The movie begins filming in the UK.
