Lethbridge Man Sentenced to House Arrest for Forging Cheques
LETHBRIDGE: 49-year old Dennis Wayne Wickham received six-months of house arrest followed by another six-months of probation Monday in Lethbridge court.
Wickham admitted to forging and cashing several cheques made out to the Southern Alberta Football Officials Association between March and December of 2009, while he was the groups President.
Wickham ended up taking just over $4,200, all of which has since been paid back to the association.
Wickham's lawyer commented that at the time of the incidents, Wickham had just put an elderly parent in an extended care facility and that he was struggling to deal with the costs. It was also stated that Wickham is a very poor money manager.
Wickham still faces unrelated charges for a similar set of incidents that allegedly happened while he was volunteering with the Lethbridge Minor Softball Association. He'll appear on those charges November 16th.
