A woman convicted of stealing from her employer has had her appeal dismissed by the Prince Edward Island Supreme Court.
Shelly Annette Taylor, 45, was sentenced in January to 14 months in jail for theft and fraud for stealing $16,000 at Urban Rootz Hair Salon where she was a bookkeeper.
Taylor filed an appeal, arguing the trial judge made mistakes in assessing evidence and her credibility.
But P.E.I.'s Court of Appeal disagreed and has upheld the conviction and the jail sentence.
Taylor was released from jail pending her appeal. She will now have to return to serve her time.
Taylor also has a 2005 conviction for embezzling nearly $200,000 from the Montague Credit Union where she worked as a teller for 13 years. She was then known as Shelly Dixon.
