Benjamin Roy ready to plead guilty for stolen vehicle traffic
Charged with nearly 70 charges related to stolen vehicle traffic, Benjamin Roy of Sherbrooke should plead guilty to his return to court in the fall.
The 40 – year – old man was back on Friday before Judge Ann – Mary Beauchemin of the Court of Quebec.
“My client has to complete some homework before pleading guilty. It is still in his intention to do so, “defense lawyer Jean-Marc Bénard told the court.
“There are some details to be fine,” added the prosecutor criminal, Louis Fouquet.
Benjamin Roy, who was present at the Sherbrooke courthouse, is accused of actions that would have taken place between 2012 and 2015.
He acquiesced in what his lawyer explained in court.
Benjamin Roy faces charges of fraud, possession of property of crime and making false documents.
He could recognize the charges at the beginning of October at the Sherbrooke courthouse.
Roy is accused of using counterfeit documents to sell cars, vans, excavators and trailers stolen in several regions, including Estrie, Montérégie, Montreal and Ottawa.
He used fake sales contracts, false registration certificates and mechanical inspection to traffic vehicles.
The vehicles were transported to New Brunswick and returned to Ontario for registration. They then returned to Quebec for a license plate change. They were then resold.
Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado pick-up trucks, BobCat E -35 or Kubota excavators and a FlagStaff Forest River trailer were traded during this period.
This long investigation, which was conducted by the Sherbrooke Police Service, allowed the filing of the charges in October 2018.
The father of the accused, who was charged with a dozen similar cases, obtained an absolute discharge after pleading guilty.
