The sentencing for an Ontario man accused of scamming Canada Post out of nearly $235,000 from 2013-16 has been delayed until he can provide medical records confirmed what he described as a potentially fatal diagnosis.
This summer, Justice Spenser Nicholson found Allan Joseph Fischer, 59, of London, Ont., guilty on two fraud-related charges. Assistant Crown attorney Adam Campbell is seeking a four- to six-year prison sentence for Fischer, whose sentencing submissions were slated for Aug. 17 before the delay.
The setback stems from Fischer’s treatment and medication for Crohn’s disease. The case was adjourned to Sept. 27 to allow Fischer more time to gather his medical records and retain a lawyer, two of which have already been removed from the case.
