The Crown is seeking a four-year jail term for a former manager of a Coquitlam poultry company who stole $1.9 million from his bosses.
In sentencing submissions Thursday, Crown counsel Kevin Marks noted that Bruce Steven Arabsky, 54, had committed his crime against Superior Poultry Processors Ltd. because he was financially over-extended.
“He was drowning in debt. It’s fair to say that at the end of the day, Mr. Arabsky was desperate and as a result he did what he did.”
Marks told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Miriam Gropper that Arabsky’s moral culpability for the theft was high and argued the offender had showed a “wanton and reckless disregard” for the welfare of his employer.
