Capital Families fraud trial starts next year

The trial process for a Victoria woman accused of embezzling $200,000 from a West Shore social services agency will begin next January.

Anita Dunkers, a former bookkeeper for Capital Families Association, is charged with fraud over $5,000. The jury selection for her trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 9, 2012, at B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria.

Capital Families operated out of the West Shore Child, Youth and Family Centre in Colwood and then portable classrooms behind Ruth King elementary before closing this year.

It had offered a variety of social programs to children and young parents, and various community programs for 34 years.
