Opening Statements For Former Gym Owner
Opening statements begin for a Kennewick man accused of stealing money from his gym members.
Former 509 Fitness owner Jason Sleater is accused of charging members a twenty dollar enhancement fee in order to save his business.
Today his defense attorney says that Jason wasn't planning on keeping the money and that he made attempts to get the money refunded to his customers.
However the prosecution says that a billing company handling 509 Finesses' accounts says Sleater told them not to give any money back to his customers.
He is charged with first and second degree theft.
