Morningside Heights is a tightly knit community, and Taylor happens to be a sibling of Shannon Templeton, Casey’s former spouse. As soon as I told Taylor Templeton how much money Casey had allegedly delivered to Peyton, Taylor was concerned. Based upon the magnitude of the bets that Taylor had seen being placed during the Fun Fair, Taylor believed that the games of chance easily made more than a mere few thousand dollars, even minus the payments made to winners. 18. As a result of our conversation, Taylor and I went to the Morningside Heights Police Department the following day, September 18, 2013, to file criminal charges against Casey Cheatham. Unfortunately, after we recounted our suspicions to the Desk Lieutenant on duty, Toni Tuesday, she told us that without more concrete evidence proving that Casey had stolen money that belonged to the Booster Club, the Morningside Heights Police would probably not take a case against Casey. Lt. Tuesday also said that our complaint against Casey was civil, not criminal, in nature and, in fact, no criminal charges regarding the Fun Fair proceeds have been filed against Casey. 19. At the next meeting of the Booster Club’s Board of Directors on October 1, 2013, Taylor Templeton gave a presentation, at my request, as to why s/he believed that Casey Cheatham had

77 11/19/14 under-reported the proceeds from the games of chance, based upon Taylor’s personal observation of the operation of those games at the Fun Fair. During the same Board of Director’s meeting, I described my visit to Casey Cheatham’s house and how I had seen stacks of cash on Casey’s coffee table. 20. Peyton Pearson reacted very angrily and accused Taylor Templeton of lying in retaliation against Casey for having divorced his/her sibling, Shannon. Peyton also insisted that Casey had recently inherited $500,000.00 from his/her favorite Aunt Mabel Cheatham, a popular, retired teacher at Morningside Heights High School, who had died single and childless, and had pinched pennies her entire life. 21. I then accused Peyton of trying to protect Casey because Casey, as Peyton’s CFO, knew all the “dirty secrets” about Peyton’s business and personal life. Over Peyton’s objection, I moved to commence a civil action on the Booster Club’s behalf against Casey Cheatham for conversion of the proceeds from the Fun Fair’s ride ticket sales and games of chance. Fran Farley seconded the motion. S/he and I voted in favor of it, while Peyton was against it. As a result, this case ensued, based upon the claim that Casey Cheatham stole Fun Fair money from the ride ticket sales and the games of chance in order to support his/her compulsive gambling habit and to fund his/her expensive purchases. Dated: September 2, 2014 I affirm the truth of this statement. Alex Aldrich Alex Aldrich

    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.
