Simon pleaded guilty to the offence and told the court that he is willing to compensate the complainant.
It was alleged that during December of 2011, the accused was given $70,000 to repair a motor cycle but instead converted the money for his personal use. When the Magistrate asked the accused if he has the $70,000 to repay the complainant, Simon could only show $7,000.
As such, the Magistrate gave the accused until tomorrow, August 29 to gather the full amount.[Royan Abrams]
