Former Cayman Islands Tennis Club manager Rob Seward

The former manager and head professional at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club, accused of theft and forgery, appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday, only to have his case adjourned again.

Robert Todd Seward, 46, first appeared in court on May 8 to face charges that included theft of US$22,856.21 and CI$116,398.

There were 70 other charges that included 24 counts of forgery, 22 counts of obtaining by deception, and 22 counts of uttering a forged document. Defense attorney Prathna Bodden had said the case did not require that number of charges.

This week, Crown counsel Greg Walcolm said the matter was being looked at with a view to combining or condensing various charges so that the case was not so unwieldy.

Magistrate Philippa McFarlane set the case for mention again on Tuesday, June 12, and continued the defendant’s bail until then. Bail conditions include non-contact with tennis club employees or members.
