A former NSW RSL president has been found guilty of fraud offences.
Armidale's Donald Edward John Rowe, 71, was accused of using his corporate credit card to pay phone and hotel bills for his family.
Magistate Jennifer Atkinson in Downing Centre Local Court on Friday found him guilty of two counts of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception.
His matter is scheduled to return to court on April 17.
Rowe had been accused of using his credit card to pay phone bills totalling $9063 for his wife, two sons and daughter from 2012 to 2014.
He was also alleged to have paid for a $363 three-night stay in a Sydney hotel room for his daughter over the Anzac Day long weekend in 2010.
Police prosecutor Karlo Haralovic last year told the magistrate that the card was restricted to official duties and the RSL had failed to scrutinise his expenses.
But defence barrister April Francis argued the prosecution had failed to prove there was deception because at no point had the RSL's honorary treasurer or financial audit and risk management committee not approved Rowe's expenses.
