A transsexual who stalked glamour girl Katie Price stole the celebrity’s identity for a second time in less than a year in a bid to get a job – as a carer.
Twisted Kerry Marshall, 19, who was born a man but is undergoing a sex change, applied for work as a lowly paid home care assistant using the model’s name and giving a bogus reference.
It is the second time she has stolen the identity of the celebrity after previously using it to take thousands from her bank account.
Earlier this year Marshall was slapped with a lifelong restraining order banning her from contacting Jordan – aka Katie Price.
But a court heard on March 22 this year she was interviewed by an agency for the job with Saga Homecare.
She was about to be taken on until the company checked out her references and realised she was a fraud.
Marshall admitted fraud when she appeared at Lincoln Crown Court last week.
She also admitted making off without payment for a £28 taxi in March after convincing the driver that she was a cardiology consultant and the bill would be paid by her employer.
Sentencing Marshall to a 12-month community order, Judge Sean Morris told her: “I am a reasonable and patient man but you are testing my patience.
“You clearly need some help but if you don’t take that help and don’t stop offending there will come a time when I will just wash my hands of you and lock you up.”
The court heard it was the second time in less than a year that Marshall had attempted to con people by using Katie Price’s identity.
Julie Warburton, prosecuting, said: “Marshall applied for a job with Saga Homecare as a home care assistant working with vulnerable adults in the community.
“An email was received from a recruitment company. The defendant’s application was under the name of Katie Price.
“The application said that she had previous experience and a full and clean driving licence. She was spoken to on the telephone and confirmed these details.
“She came in for an appointment with a recruitment officer on March 22. She said she had no previous convictions or cautions and also gave details of two references.
“They were contacted. It became apparent that she was not known to either of them.
“The recruitment officer then carried out a search on the internet and discovered stories giving details of Marshall’s previous conviction.”
Chris Milligan defending said: “It is not a quick fix. She has substantial difficulties arising from her gender issues which were not dealt with when she was a child.
“She started to realise she was not like other boys at the age of nine. She went through adolescence with no help and no treatment.
“The perspective is that because these issues were not dealt with it has manifested itself in her desire for celebrity status.”
Last year Marshall obtained Price’s personal HSBC bank account details and tricking the bank into sending her a replacement card after claiming the original was stolen.
Marshall used the card to go on a spending spree with her purchases including a £9,000 Mazda MX sports car and a Pandora bracelet.
The fraudster disguised herself with a blonde wig and glasses and managed to withdraw £2,500 cash over the counter at one of the bank’s branches.
As a result of that court appearance in February Marshall was given a two year community order.
Marshall, of Sleaford, Lincs., refused to comment outside court last week.
