James Timothy Drummond pleads guilty to 2 forgery charges

James Timothy Drummond pleads guilty to 2 forgery charges

A man with a checkered past in British Columbia has again pleaded guilty to a criminal offence in this province.

James Timothy Drummond entered guilty pleas to two counts of uttering a forged document at Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court Tuesday morning.

The offences date back to October 2014.

Other charges against Drummond will be withdrawn, once an agreed statement of facts is presented at his sentencing hearing on June 20.

A year ago, in relation to a separate 2013 incident, Drummond pleaded guilty to one count of fraud over $5,000. He was sentenced to three months in prison and 12 months of supervised probation.

Drummond was once described by a British Columbia Supreme Court judge as a "con man."

The judge made those comments in 2008, after hearing stories about overseas family trusts that did not appear to exist, dead relatives that were still very much alive, and a trail of Drummond's business associates who said they lost hundreds of thousands of dollars to him over the years.

Drummond, now 69, also has a previous 2001 conviction for stealing $45,000 from the West Vancouver Boy Scouts' Christmas tree fund in the 1990s.
