Men who used fake companies to swindle millions from DND sent to prison

March 18, 2021 – Two Nova Scotia men who swindled the Department of National Defence out of millions of dollars are being sent to prison. But, given that they’ve already been serving conditional sentences it’s not clear how much time, if any, Harold Dawson and Bry’n Ross will actually spend behind bars.

The two men were convicted in September 2019 of fraud over $5,000. They were sentenced on Feb. 25, 2020, to conditional sentences of two years, less a day. The Crown appealed those sentences and in a decision released Wednesday, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal agreed with the Crown and substituted prison sentences. CBC News reports. | READ MORE
