The case of a woman facing close to 100 charges for reportedly swindling money from a figure skating club while she served on the executive will have her case back in court this summer.

Wanda Goodyear was not in provincial court in St. John’s today when her case was called.

Instead, she was represented by her lawyer, Ben Curties.

Curties told Judge Colin Flynn that the file containing the evidence from Goodyear’s case is extensive.

“It’s complicated disclosure and involves a lot of financial records,” he said.

“I concur,” Crown prosecutor Danny Vavasour added.

The lawyers agreed to have the case return to court July 3.

Goodyear, 48, faces 96 charges, including fraud under $5,000, theft under $5,000, forgery and using or possessing a forged document

The 48-year-old — who is a former president of the skating club — was said to have defrauded the club between May 2010 and May 2012.
