Everitt pleads guilty

Former Dawson City mayor Glen Everitt pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one of the six criminal charges he faces.

Former Dawson City mayor Glen Everitt pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one of the six criminal charges he faces.

Everitt left office in 2004 after an investigative audit determined he misspent public funds, including racking up a $1,800 bar tab on the town’s credit card and the misappropriation of more than $100,000 in city funds.

This week, he pleaded guilty to one count of breaching the trust of a public officer. He faces a second count of the same charge, two counts of fraud and two counts of theft over $5,000.

At the time of his dismissal in 2004, the entire council and mayor were fired and an administrator was appointed to help bring Dawson’s finances back in order.

Everitt was first charged in 2007 after RCMP reviewed the auditor’s report and determined criminal actions took place. (James Munson)
