Theft and Fraud

R. v. A.R. – Theft and Fraud Case

Alonzo Rambo and his wife, Felice Mambo, had successfully established themselves in Canada after years of sacrifice, hard work and struggle. Things were going well for them until their past came back to haunt them. Both were charged with fraud. They were being accused of having stolen from the welfare system. The theft and fraud case against them was strong. They had worked so hard to make it and now it seemed that it was all for naught. Neither could afford a criminal record. Felice wasn’t a Canadian citizen and a conviction could lead to her deportation. Alonzo worked in the financial industry and a conviction would certainly spell the end of his career. Felice did not want to take the matter to trial. Ultimately, their theft and fraud case was resolved so that the charge against Felice was withdrawn and the Alonzo was discharged by the judge.
