In addition, the accused on the following day, uttered to the VC another cheque to the effect of $70,519, under the pretense that he was in the position to grant same. Moreover, Williams on another occasion with intent to defraud allegedly presented a $1,500 cheque to the VC, being aware that he did not have sufficient funds to satisfy the said amount.
