What Fraud Victims Should Know About the Criminal Sentencing of Fraudsters and Fraud Recovery
An Update on Fraud Recovery through Criminal Restitution Orders 
by Norman Groot

On July 28, 2015, investment fraudsters Garry Sorenson and Milowe Brost were sentenced in their criminal trial to 12 years in jail. The Reasons for Judgment were just released by the Court, which is what prompted this blog post. The Court declared the fraud perpetrated by Sorenson and Brost to be the "biggest fraud in Canadian history" involving potentially $200M and potentailly 850 victims.
