Former golf club manager sentenced for fraud

    A former manager of Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club was sentenced in court for fraud last Friday.     Cameron Foreman appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, December 17. He had pleaded guilty to one count of fraud under $5,000.
    Foreman is the former manger of Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club, and he was terminated from the position.
    After he was no longer with the club, he used his computer access to put funds on gift cards, which he used at the golf course between April, and September 2009. In all he spent about $950.
    Council for Foreman, Hugh Sommerville said when the offenses came to light, Foreman admitted it was a stupid mistake, and did not hide his actions from police.
    He also said Foreman has since had trouble landing gainful employment, and wanted to be in a position to pay full restitution to the golf course. On Friday, he was in the position to pay restitution.
    Judge Grieve, in handing down sentence to Foreman said it was the golf course’s trust in Foreman that probably landed him the job in the first place, and using inside knowledge even after he was no longer employed, was still a breach of trust.
    Grieve sentenced Foreman to one day in custody, (being the day of his court appearance) and then probation for one year with terms that included paying restitution and writing an appropriate letter of apology to Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club.
