Medal fraudster back in court, fined again
Wed, 01 Aug 2012 5:48p.m.
Otaki’s former RSA president Don Moselen appeared in Levin District Court again today, pleading guilty to obtaining money from the RSA by deception.
The conviction is the latest in a long line of crimes dating back to 1958, which include numerous counts of theft and misappropriating funds.
He was last in court two months ago when he was sentenced for wearing three war medals he wasn’t entitled to at ANZAC Day ceremonies over a number of years.
Today, he was sentenced for stealing money from the RSA to have those medals properly mounted.
He was ordered to refund the $63.20 it cost for the mounting and pay $500 in reparations.
Moselen declined answering any questions from media outside court, a walk which was a familiar one for him.
In 1991 he stole a cheque of more than $17,000 made out to the Wellington Rugby Referees Association when he was an executive member.
In 1990 he stole a $15,000 cheque meant for the Wellington Rugby Union, and in 1975 he was sentenced to 15 months in prison for stealing cheques and cash of more than $1600.
He also stole $2100 meant for the Titahi Bay Surf Life Saving Club.
