Preview Clip

Financial adviser Earl Jones, 67, turned himself in to Quebec provincial police July 27th to face charges of fraud and theft after disappearing for about three weeks. Quebec's financial securities regulator had alleged Jones may have swindled investors out of as much as 50 million dollars. Brook Hamilton, the son of one of the victims, said he hoped Jones's arrest would mean some answers were forthcoming. (Jones was not present as the Crown and defense agreed in a Montreal courtroom to put off the case until December 4th. Lawyer Jeffrey Boro said Jones was bankrupt, living off his modest government pensions and unable to find a job.)
