Corporate Trust Theft and Fraud (Calgary) – Jail

CC: s.334(A) – Theft Over $5000, s.380(1)(A) – Fraud Over $5000.

My client was an Executive Assistant to the Simpson Family, who own and operate CANA Construction.  Over a period of 6 months, my client embezzled over $70,000 from the company, through the misappropriation of funds and misuse of the corporate credit card for personal cash advances.

After a Preliminary Inquiry, my client pleaded guilty and received a sentence of 12 months incarceration.  The Crown was asking for 2 years.
