Former local soccer exec won't be sentenced until November

A local sports group will have to wait until November before finding out how a former executive will be punished for defrauding it of about $180,000.

Debbie Judd, former president of the Richmond Youth Soccer Association, was scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday afternoon, but a "miscommunication" means that the required pre-sentencing report that the court was waiting for, has still not been completed.

Richmond provincial court Judge Patrick Chen was told a new report will take at least six weeks for the probation office to complete.

The sentencing has therefore been rescheduled for Nov. 8 at 1:30 p.m.

Judd, who was not in court Wednesday, was charged in June of 2009 with fraud, theft over $5,000 and uttering forged documents.

The missing money wasn't noticed until late in 2003, and Richmond Mounties began their investigation in early 2004.

At that time, the association's budget was around $175,000.

Crown counsel Mark Rankin said he will be asking for at the very least a restitution order.
