No, not Helen…. Unfortunately.

Donna Awatere Huata was today sentenced to 2yrs, 9mths in jail for stealing from a Maori trust set up to help under-privileged children.

Her husband Wi Huata was sentenced to 2yrs, which he can apply for home detention.

The couple was found guilty of four joint charges of fraud and one joint charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Awatere Huata was found guilty of one individual charge of fraud and not guilty of another fraud charge.

The Serious Fraud Office said the duo stole $82,000 from the Government funded Pipi Foundation and then tried to cover up their crime by altering the books and asking people to lie for them.
