nothing better than the exhilaration of a great day at Shoreline Downs!” 13. By then, I was extremely concerned. I had heard from several sources that Casey Cheatham had a compulsive gambling problem. Rumor had it that Casey bet on the horse races at the local Off Track Betting (“OTB”) parlor, and that s/he played the video lottery terminal games at the Shoreline Downs Racetrack excessively. True, Casey made a six-figure salary as the CFO at Pearson Precision, but that didn’t go very far, since Casey had to pay almost half of his/her disposable income to his/her ex-spouse, Shannon Templeton, as maintenance from his/her hotly contested divorce in 2010. 14. I didn’t recall having seen Casey Cheatham brag about large purchases on his/her Face Space page before the September 3 rd sports car purchase posting. I knew that Peyton Pearson had assigned Casey to gather and safeguard the proceeds from the ride ticket sales and the games of chance at the Fun Fair. Needless to say, I became very suspicious that Casey was spending money that belonged to the Booster Club. 15. On the evening of September 16, 2013, I paid an unannounced visit to Casey Cheatham’s home. I wanted to find out where s/he was keeping the proceeds from the Fun Fair ride tickets and games of chance. When Casey answered the door, I asked if we could discuss the money, but Casey said it wasn’t a good time because s/he was taking care of his/her dog, Rex, who Casey claimed was sick. From where I was standing on Casey’s porch, I thought I saw stacks of cash

76 11/19/14 lying on a coffee table, about 10 feet away. When I asked Casey if it was cash on the coffee table, Casey said that s/he had to go, and closed the door in my face. 16. The next day, I went to see Peyton at the offices of Pearson Precision Corp. It was his/her first day back there since returning from Europe. I told Peyton about my encounter with Casey Cheatham the previous day, and that I was now convinced that Casey had stolen money from the Fun Fair proceeds that Peyton had entrusted to him/her. Peyton answered that what I said was nonsense, that just that morning, Casey had given him/her a full accounting of those proceeds, and that on Peyto n’s instruction, Casey had deposited the cash in a special account that Peyton had created solely for those funds at the Empire of New York Bank. Peyton specifically told me that those proceeds, totaling $98,200.00, derived mostly from the sale of tickets for the chicken dinners and the rides. I was really upset, especially because Peyton refused to see that Casey had stolen from our kids, and on my way out I said, “I told you so - Casey is a no-good, lying thief!” 17. I couldn’t believe that Peyton still didn’t get it, so I called Taylor Templeton, a Shoreline Downs blackjack dealer, who had overseen the operation of the games of chance at the Fun Fair.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
