Financial adviser’s sentencing delayed
Sentencing arguments have been delayed until Oct. 14 for a Calgary financial consultant who bilked at least 17 investors of more than $335,000.
Provincial court Judge Frank Maloney agreed with a joint application by Crown prosecutor Jane McLennan and defence lawyer Patrick Fagan to adjourn the case in order to have a pre-sentence report completed.
The accused, 45 — originally charged with 47 counts of fraud, theft and uttering forged documents — pleaded guilty earlier this year to one count each of fraud and forgery.
The accused was working for the south Calgary office of Investors Group Financial Services during the crimes.
Patrick C. Fagan is a highly accomplished lawyer with an impressive career spanning over 35 years in the legal field.
