A Bracebridge woman will spend the next year under house arrest after she defrauded a victim of more than $2,000.
Appearing in a Bracebridge courtroom, Elizabeth Clarke-Anderson, 38, of Bracebridge pled guilty to making a false document.
Court heard that in Aug of 2022, the OPP were contacted regarding a possible fraud.
Court heard that Clarke-Anderson had fraudulently made 12 cheques out to herself from the victim totalling $2,100. In 2021 Clarke-Anderson was convicted of defrauding an individual and the TD Canada Trust in Gravenhurst out of nearly $10,000.
Justice Edward Carlton said it was particularly disappointing that she had been convicted so shortly after her previous conviction for fraud.
She was sentenced to six months under house arrest and six months under curfew. She was also ordered to pay back $3,900 in restitution, some of which stemmed from the previous conviction.
