It will take Claudette Phenix-Campeau more than 17 years to repay an alleged fraud to her former employer. The woman is said to have defrauded a financial institution of $200 000.

The alleged fraud carried out by the 61 year old woman from Beauharnois appears to have taken place between June 30, 2009 and February 27, 2013 in Ormstown. Claudette Phenix-Campeau was employed by the CIBC at that time.

The accused, who was working as a broker, agreed to an out-of-court settlement with her former employer to pay back the alleged funds. Phenix-Campeau’s lawyer, Me Jean-François Benoit, informed Judge Marie-Chantal Doucet on Tuesday, December 13 that his client would pay $1000 a month to reimburse the amount owing.

Me Benoit also explained to the court that he would waive a preliminary inquiry into the present file and that the case will be back before the court on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
