Charges have been withdrawn against a former chief administrative officer for the Town of Kapuskasing, who was one of two men accused of bilking the municipality of $ 800,000. Sudbury Crown Attorney Marc Huneault confirmed Thursday charges against Yvan Brousseau were withdrawn earlier this week. Another out- of- town Crown is dealing with the charges against the co- accused Karl Hollett.
Both men were charged with fraud over $ 5,000.
The offenses were alleged to have occurred during a period between September 2014 and February 2015 when Brousseau held the position of chief executive officer of Énergie Kapuskasing Energy, which was wholly owned by the town, and Hollett, was the owner of a solar panel company contracted by the Town of Kapuskasing.
