    Tony Cree was sentenced in the Christchurch District Court today.

    He had earlier pleaded guilty to representative charge of dishonestly and without claim of right using a document to obtain a pecuniary advantage.

    At one point he claimed his partner was sick and had died, which made it difficult for him to comply with Inland Revenue requests.
