Fraudster Lacroix wants simpler life

Friends of Norbourg fraud artist Vincent Lacroix say he has developed a taste for a simpler life while in prison and is looking forward to a quiet future when he is released on full parole in a few days.

Lacroix has been living at a halfway house in Montreal's south-west sector and doing volunteer work.

A friend has told La Presse that the volunteer work with the less fortunate changed Lacroix's outlook on life.

He was convicted of defrauding Norbourg investors of more than 113-million dollars and served two years in jail before being transferred to a halfway house in 2011.

    Two years for 113 million dollar fraud. I hardly would equate that to being reabilitated considering his victims lost their life savings. This proves that the laws and the justice system do not treat this fraud as a serious crime.
