A Smart Extractor truck driver who stole $8.7 million from a Canadian smartphone company after claiming it was a legitimate product is on trial in Nova Scotia.
Nathan Dzierkowiak, 31, pleaded guilty Monday to charges of fraud, breach of trust and breach of confidence.
He has been released on bail.
Dzirko, of St. Catharines, Ont., is charged with stealing $6.6 million from an Ottawa-based company called Cineflex.
He was sentenced to five years in prison.
He had already spent a year in prison in 2014.
Dzerko also faces charges of theft of personal property and breaching trust.
CBC News has asked Cinelex to comment.
Dzekowski was found guilty by the Nova Scotia Court of Queen’s Bench in March.
Dzaowski’s lawyer, John Boulton, said he is pleased with the outcome.
“This case was about the integrity of the process, the integrity and fairness of the courts, and Mr. Dzezowski’s willingness to come to the table to work through it and come to a settlement,” Boulson said.
“I am confident that the Crown will prove that Mr. Boulston is a very strong and determined lawyer who will lead this case to a happy resolution for Mr. and Mrs. Dziowski.”
Dziriks trial will continue at Nova Scotia Supreme Court until Feb. 22.
His trial is scheduled to continue March 12.
