Ex-Bauer photographer fined for fraud

A photographer formerly employed by Bauer Media, publisher of MCN, has been fined and given a suspended prison sentence after being found guilty of fraud.

Ian Stewart Jubb, 35, of Clint Lane, Navenby, was given a 24-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months after a trial at Lincoln Magistrates Court on 16 December.

The court heard Jubb, intending to profit from his actions, had claimed to police that £23,000 worth of photographic equipment belonging to Bauer had been stolen in a burglary in Stamford on 3 September, 2015.

He had denied a charge of fraud and of wasting police time by making a false report of the burglary.

Jubb was fined £615 and ordered to do 100 hours’ unpaid work and to pay £2000 in compensation.

Jubb, who no longer works for Bauer, describes himself on LinkedIn as “director, social media expert, photographer and video guy” at Motofire.com, the motorcycle news website. There is no reference to his time at Bauer Media.
