Meghan Melnyk, the former president of Mount Royal University’s Student Association, will be sentenced in ten days for her role in a 2012 robbery.
Melnyk was charged with robbery, possession of a prohibited weapon, and committing an indictable offence while disguised following a heist at a southeast bank back in February of 2012.
On February 29,2012, a woman entered the Servus Credit Union in the 5300 block of 68 Ave. S.E. and approached the teller.
She claimed she had a weapon, demanded cash, and then left with an undisclosed amount of money.
Outstanding warrants for Melnyk were also executed at the time of her arrest for fraud, uttering forged documents, and a breach of probation.
Melnyk was the SAMRU president and resigned after some financial anomalies were discovered.
Melnyk pleaded guilty to the charges last August and was released on bail in March, 2012 with conditions.
On Friday, the judge allowed Melnyk to withdraw her guilty plea on the fraud charges.
She will be sentenced on the robbery charge on June 17th and the court will deal with the fraud charges separately.
