Man agrees to peace bond

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

Luigi Imola agreed Mon­day to en­ter into a peace bond pro­hibit­ing the Brant­ford man from any con­tact with two for­mer Crown wit­nesses in a fraud trial in­volv­ing him­self and his wife, Paige Imola. Luigi Imola, who had been charged with in­tim­i­dat­ing the wit­nesses, was set for the start of his trial Mon­day morn­ing. In a brief ap­pear­ance at Su­pe­rior Court, Imola agreed to a six-month com­mon-law peace bond that pro­hibits him from hav­ing con­tact with two for­mer em­ploy­ees at Ball Me­dia Corp. As­sis­tant Crown at­tor­ney Larry Brock said there was in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to prove there was an el­e­ment of vi­o­lence in­volved in the in­tim­i­da­tion. Brock said the charges stemmed from two in­ci­dents in 2013 and 2014 when Luigi Imola had con­tact in public with the wit­nesses. Fol­low­ing tes­ti­mony over 17 weeks, Paige Imola was found guilty in May in con­nec­tion with mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of more than $500,000 from Ball Me­dia, a Brant­ford mul­ti­me­dia company. Luigi Imola was ac­quit­ted of the same charges. Paige Imola is sched­uled to be sen­tenced on Oct. 10.
