The Lethbridge Herald reports that a pre-trial conference has been ordered for the trial of a woman accused of defrauding the University of Lethbridge out of an estimated $580K. The pre-trial conference will be undertaken to schedule dates for the trial that will suit the defence, the Crown, and a judge. Calgary lawyer Rabie Ahmed said that “some very serious logistical issues” also require discussion, such as finding an appropriate judge to conduct the trial due to ULethbridge’s high-profile involvement. The accused reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charges of fraud over $5K, theft over $5K, and possession of stolen property over $5K.
