Krista Dawn Woods to be sentenced in March

SUMMERSIDE — An employee of Summerside’s Consolidated Credit Union will be back in court in March for sentencing after pleading guilty Thursday to theft.

Prince County Courthouse.

Krista Dawn Woods, 38, of Summerside pleaded guilty to stealing Canadian currency, the property of Michael Gaudet of AOK Fast Cash, over the period of Jan. 1 to Oct. 29, 2012.

No facts of the case were disclosed in court.

Defence attorney Mitchell MacLeod requested that a presentence report be prepared prior to sentencing and that facts be adjourned until that date.

A victim impact statement has been filed with the court.

Concerns were raised by both MacLeod and Crown attorney David O’Brien with the victim impact statement, noting that the amount the victim said was stolen is substantially larger than the amount contained in the facts.

Both lawyers recommended that Judge Jeff Lantz not read the victim impact statement until facts in the case were presented.

Summerside Police Services, when contacted late last year about the case, would not comment on whether the charge related directly to a theft from the financial institution where Woods worked.

O’Brien noted in court Thursday that the charge does have “the connotation” of an employer/employee breach.

“The theft occurred while she was employed at a financial institution,” he added.

The presentence report and facts will be detailed and Woods sentenced on March 5.
