becoming a compulsive gambler. This is particularly applicable to Casey, who has a hard- charging six-figure job with Pearson Precision Corp. as its Chief Financial Officer. In that role, Casey made some risky moves that paid off very handsomely over the years. In my opinion, this explains Peyton’s loyalty to Casey, and may also be the source of Casey’s feelings of stress to keep those personal and professional rewards coming. Casey had been rewarded personally and professionally from essentially risky, gambling behavior. In my opinion, if Casey’s gambling disorder remains untreated, it is likely that it will escalate with Casey potentially stealing from Pearson Corporation in the future. 15. It is my opinion that Casey’s gambling is out of control for a number of reasons. Casey admits that in the past, gambling has wrecked a marriage, created huge financial losses, and caused depression. I have been told that Casey bets on the horses several times per week at a local OTB parlor and plays video lottery terminals to excess. I believe this indicates the return of Casey’s full-fledged gambling addiction. My professional opinion is that Casey was annoyed and depressed by the delay in receiving his/her inheritance, and as a result, he returned to gambling and suffered huge losses prior to stealing the Booster Club money. 16. Despite the opinions of other psychiatrists in my field about whether a compulsive gambler “intends” to steal money, gambling addiction does not and should not relieve anyone from criminal or civil consequences of their behavior. Therefore, based on the foregoing, it is my professional opinion that Casey intentionally stole the money at issue; he should be held accountable and receive treatment. Dated: September 17, 2014 To the best of my knowledge, the above is true. Jesse James, M.D., A.A.A.P.

87 11/19/14 AFFIDAVIT OF CASEY CHEATHAM 1. My name is Casey Cheatham and I am 56 years old. I reside at 534 Big Hill Road in Morningside Heights, New York. I am employed as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Pearson Precision Corp., a company that coordinates projects for eco-friendly businesses. We have the distinction of being the largest property taxpayer in the Morningside Heights District. 2. I have an M.B.A. from SUNY at Stony Brook, received in 1983. I received my undergraduate degree in political science from SUNY at Buffalo in 1980. After M.B.A. school, I went to work for Parthur Pandersen, a national accounting firm. Following the demise of PP in 2002 as a result of the Fenron accounting fiasco, I was hired in 2003 by my longtime friend, Mr./Mrs. Peyton Pearson, as an internal auditor. Our friendship grew even stronger as a result of our working together. About three years after I was hired, the then-CFO retired and I was promoted to the position. Peyton trusted me in the role of CFO. I skipped over several individuals who had been in the financial division of the company a lot longer and needless to say, many of them were not happy with my elevation. You wouldn’t believe the backbiting and vitriol accompanying my promotion. The stories about how I got the CFO position were rampant

    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.
