Former tennis club manager appears in court

Rob Seward, the former Cayman Islands Tennis Club manager who was arrested earlier this year in relation to financial irregularities at the club, made his first appearance in court on 8 May, 2018.

The 46-year-old is accused of stealing more than $100,000 from the South Sound club spanning between March 2017 and January 2018. He was charged on 3 May.

Seward faces two counts of theft, 23 charges of forgery, 22 charges of obtaining property by deception, 22 charges of uttering a forged document, one charge of converting and transferring criminal property, and two charges of concealing or disguising criminal property.

However, his attorney, Prathna Bodden, successfully argued that the number of charges should be reduced. The prosecution agreed to this.

Seward will remain on bail with various restriction until his next scheduled court appearance on 22 May. Among the stipulations he faces is that he makes no contact with members of the club and to stay away from the facility. A $500 surety was also stipulated by the court.

Seward, who has also served as a tennis pro at the club and been involved with youth programmes was arrested in January.
