Trial dates set for Gilles Saucier

CORNWALL – Six days have been set aside in 2016 to start a trial for Gilles Saucier.

The Cornwall financial adviser is charged with 11 counts of fraud over $5,000, 11 counts of breach of trust, three counts of uttering forged documents and nine counts of theft by conversion.

Saucier, president of Gilden Financial Solutions Corporation, was arrested Oct. 4, 2012 after he turned himself into police.

Police say, during their investigation following a complaint on Oct. 16, 2011, they identified several victims.

The alleged cases of fraud happened between July 2009 and November 2011.

A judicial pretrial (JPT) is scheduled for Sep. 8, 2015 where the Crown will lay out its case to a judicial pretrial judge (who is not the trial judge) and get an evaluation on its case.

It’s also an opportunity for a plea deal, avoiding a trial, as the judicial pretrial judge can accept a guilty plea on that day.

Saucier’s trial is scheduled for Jan. 22, 2016 and will last up to six days.
