THE case involving allegations of the mishandling of community centre funds by a former York Shire councillor and his wife will continue in March.
In October of last year, former councillor Ashley Garratt and his wife Robyn Garratt were charged with defrauding the York Community Resource Centre (CRC).
The couple appeared in Northam Magistrates court this past Monday, January 8, with their next appearance set for March 18.
Mr Garratt has been charged with one count of benefitting from fraud, and one count of property laundering.
He also faces one charge of failing to adequately store firearms of ammunition safely, but this is unrelated to the York CRC case.
Mrs Garratt is facing thirteen charges in relation to alleged misappropriation of funds from the York CRC, where she worked.
Those charges are seven counts of fraud by forgery, three counts of stealing as a servant, one count of property laundering, and two counts of benefiting from fraud.
