This Lady Stole $28,000 From Activision to Pay For Her Engagement Party

A PR executive working for the makers of Xbox game Call Of Duty siphoned off £18,963 to pay for her engagement party, hen party and designer shopping sprees.

Kathryn Kirton, 35, was head of PR at Activision when she got carried away with the 'glamorous and luxurious' world of public relations, Blackfriars Crown Court heard.

She was in charge of the budget for a major film premiere-style launch of the game, but instead siphoned off thousands of pounds. (Activision Blizzard Inc., Culture)

I bet old man Kotick wasnt happy and send in the rogue lawyer assasination team with Soap Mctavish and a few ORCS.

Does Bobby Kotick have to choke a bitch!

"Kirton was sentenced to 18 months in prison but the judge delayed the sentence so that Kirton can take care of her two year old son, who was born prematurely due to the stress that Kirton was under."

Stealing money for shopping spree's is stressful folks.

what you all don't now is kotic bought stock in disney so he is able to use the force lightning but sadly he needs a kill streak to use it

Yeah, that has to be considered as pocket-change as far as Activision is concerned...

Don't drop the sandwiches.

What's funny is Activision tried to steal millions of dollars from Infinity Wards employees. How this even concerned them is beyond me.
