Martin Outhwaite, 64, pleaded guilty in Saskatoon provincial court on July 23 to fraud over $5,000. A charge of theft over $5,000 was stayed.

Outhwaite was sentenced to two years less a day, with the time to be served in the community subject to a number of conditions, including strict guidelines on when he can leave his home. He was also ordered to pay restitution of $153,593.51.
