Date set for fraud trial of ex-bursar
A TRIAL has been set for a former school bursar accused of fraud.
Paul Gorman, 66, who worked at St Boniface's Roman Catholic College, is set to face a judge and jury in April next year.
Gorman, of Oak Drive, Crownhill, denies three charges relating to his time at the secondary school in Manadon.
He allegedly abused his position as bursar to commit fraud intending to cause loss to the college and the city council between March 2008 and March last year.

Gorman is further charged with fraud by using a particular bank card to buy goods and services for himself between October 2010 and January 2011.
He is finally charged with fraud by false representation in claiming he was enrolled on a Cycle Plus scheme to keep part of his salary free of tax or national insurance between November 2010 and July last year.
Judge Graham Cottle heard that a date had been set for a trial on April 15. The hearing is expected to last between two and three weeks.
Gorman, who was not required to attend, sat at the back of court for the hearing. He is on unconditional bail.
