A judge ordered that $273,000 seized from accused thief Nickolas Guindon-Vachon in Aruba be returned to its “rightful owner” – the company behind the Escapade Music Festival he helped organize.
Judge Albert Roy ruled Tuesday for Guindon-Vachon’s former partners.
They reported about $600,000 missing from the Ottawa Stadium safe after the two-day techno music event that drew 15,000 last Canada Day weekend.
They were visibly relieved outside court.
“Obviously tons of money is still missing – it’s a start,” said Ali Shafaee, a director of DNA Presents which needs the cash to pay its bills with plans well underway for the 2013 festival.
Guindon-Vachon was arrested on the tropical island on Aug. 6, 2012 and returned to the city to face charges of theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property over $5,000.
Guindon-Vachon, who cross-examined Shafaee because he’s currently representing himself, opposed the move.
He argued that the math on the missing money doesn’t add up and said he has yet to face a trial and isn’t guilty of theft.
Roy heard that Guindon-Vachon has abandoned a bid to get some of the cash to pay for legal expenses because he doesn’t have a lawyer.
DNA lawyer David Dwoskin argued it’s in Guindon-Vachon’s interest that the festival’s bills get paid because he, like his former partners, could be personally liable for debts.
A prosecutor said the actual cash which police will photograph before handing it over isn’t needed to prove the case.

Once I took a piss in front of everybody at Stereo. Put the garbage under the mixer, and did it right there while people were dancing and screaming. people thought I was playing with the mixer but I was playing with my zizi.
