A Saskatoon man has been convicted in connection with fraudulent activity committed against Parkland Fuel Corp. a decade ago.

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.

Crown prosecutor Christy Pannell said the charges related to fraudulent transactions involving Parkland and perpetrated by Outhwaite while he was an employee of the Red Deer company during the early 2000s. These included presenting false invoices to Parkland for merchandise that was never received.
