No, not Helen…. Unfortunately.

Donna Awatere Huata was today sentenced to 2yrs, 9mths in jail for stealing from a Maori trust set up to help under-privileged children.

Her husband Wi Huata was sentenced to 2yrs, which he can apply for home detention.

The couple was found guilty of four joint charges of fraud and one joint charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Awatere Huata was found guilty of one individual charge of fraud and not guilty of another fraud charge.

The Serious Fraud Office said the duo stole $82,000 from the Government funded Pipi Foundation and then tried to cover up their crime by altering the books and asking people to lie for them.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
