Man gets three years for fraud
A man currently serving time for operating an overseas employment scam was again brought before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court for the same crime.
Everton Boothe, 54, pleaded guilty to three counts of obtaining money by means of false pretence and guilty to three counts of forgery when he appeared in court on Monday.
The court heard that Boothe collected a sum of $84,000 from three complainants, falsely telling them he could provide them with visas and employment on the farm work programme in Canada.
He was sentenced to three years' imprisonment, which will run concurrently.
