Embezzler blames Parkinson's5th March 2010
An Aberdeenshire man has said the medicine he was given to treat his Parkinson's disease caused him to embezzle over £60,000.
His defence counsel David Moggach told Aberdeen Sheriff Court: "He was placed on medication for his illness in 2001 which perhaps explains why there became a change in his behaviour. It has subsequently been recognised that these drugs can be associated with impulsive behaviour. Perhaps because of the medication he was on, impulse control disorder led to this behaviour."
