Exit Realty on the Rock owner Anne Squires will go to trial next spring on charges of theft, fraud and issuing forged documents.
Squires’ lawyer, Randy Piercey, entered not guilty pleas on her behalf when she was arraigned at Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court in St. John’s Monday morning. Squires didn’t attend.
Eight weeks have been set aside for the trial, which will be heard by a judge and jury beginning April 2, 2019.
Former realtor Anne Squires’ case postponed to next month
Squires was charged at the end of 2016, following a police investigation that lasted 10 months. She is alleged, among other things, to have falsified home purchase and sales agreements in order to get commissions from a mainland company.
That company filed a lawsuit against Squires, who argued one of her staff members entered into the agreements without her approval.
Squires is also charged with stealing money from a trust account.
Exit Realty on the Rock went into receivership in February 2016, after the government pulled its real estate licence.
