A beneficiary attendant in a residence for the elderly took advantage of her situation to steal a resident’s credit card and use it fraudulently.
Audrey Acteau acknowledged this theft and made 29 transactions for a total of $ 4796 between 12 and 28 October 2013 in Amos.
The woman who now resides in the Estrie region has had her files transferred to the Sherbrooke court house on Wednesday to settle her accounts with the courts.
Audrey Acteau had managed to get the old lady’s personal identification number (PIN) to defraud her for this important amount.
Audrey Acteau was identified by the institution’s surveillance cameras. She was subsequently dismissed from the residence for the elderly where she worked.
The accused also acknowledged the theft of a Visa credit card in October 2014.
In March 2014, Audteau Acteau committed a fraud of $ 760 at the Caisse populaire de Thetford Mines.
She had deposited an empty envelope at the ATM before withdrawing the money. The 22-year-old woman told the court that she had a repayment agreement with the financial institution.
Before Justice Erick Vanchestein of the Court of Quebec, Audteau Acteau also pleaded guilty to having steeped in a stolen debit card deal. Ten transactions were completed for a total of $ 3950.
Even though she did not steal the card, she acknowledged that she took advantage of the money from this case.
Me Jean-Pierre Gagnon, who acted for Mr. Annik Magri in defense, requested the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
Audteau Acteau has a criminal record, one of which is fraud.
The observations on the sentence were set at May 5 at the Sherbrooke Courthouse.
He was driving his vehicle with four times the alcohol limit
A 59-year-old from Sherbrooke admitted driving his vehicle with a blood alcohol level close to four times the limit of alcohol allowed by law.
The Sherbrooke driver admitted to driving his vehicle with a blood alcohol level of 307 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, while the limit is set at 80 mg per 100 ml of blood.
This event occurred on April 26, 2016 in the parking lot of a convenience store.
The driver retreated into a concrete block trying to leave the place.
A witness from the scene called the police. They quickly noticed the obvious symptoms of drunkenness of the individual whose approach was staggering.
The individual without an antecedent has been fined $ 1,400.
” I am sorry. It’s a big mistake on my part. When you’re drunk, you do not think, “the accused told the court.
Justice Erick Vanchestein of the Court of Quebec noted the high blood alcohol level. He reminded him of the ban on driving for the next year.
“If you are caught driving while your license is suspended, a sentence of imprisonment is usually ordered in the region,” the judge recalled.
It was Melissa Gilbert who defended the accused, while Marilene Laviolette represented the public prosecutor.
The two Americans arrested at the freed
The two young Americans accused of importing narcotics into Canada were released on conditional release.
If Brayden Riley was released on Wednesday, his alleged accomplice Devon Jr. Harris will have to wait until Friday before leaving the Sherbrooke Detention Center.
Riley, 19, filed $ 10,000 to the clerks of the Sherbrooke Courthouse for release. His mother, present in Sherbrooke Wednesday, also committed for $ 5,000.
Brayden Riley, defended by Patrick Frechette, will be able to return to the State of New York where he resides.
Released to Friday
Devon Jr. Harris will also be released on the same terms. His lawyer, Mr. Joel Bourassa, postponed the case to Friday so that his client could raise the necessary amount to ensure compliance with his conditions in court.
In addition to committing to the usual conditions of peacekeeping and good behavior, the two young men must be present at all stages of the judicial process.
Devon Jr. Harris and Brayden Riley are charged with possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking and importing narcotics.
About one kilo of cannabis was discovered in the vehicle of both accused. The drug was hidden in plastic bags in various places in the trunk of the vehicle. The two said they had made a mistake and wanted to turn around at the border post when they were arrested.
It was during the secondary excavation that the narcotics were found. It is Mr. Frank D’Amours who represents the federal prosecution in this case. The file was handed over to March 13th.
