Peterborough man accused of pretending to be lawyer

A man from Peterborough has been accused of pretending to be a solicitor and barrister to conduct legal work.

Marious Pimm, 42, of Crescent Road, Whittlesey, appeared at Peterborough Magistrates' Court where he was granted unconditional bail.

He was charged with eight counts of fraud by false representation and must return to the court next Wednesday.

One of the charges states that Mr Pimm received £4,000 by telling a mother her son's home would be repossessed.

Between March and October 2008, he is accused of conducting a divorce and pretending to be a qualified solicitor and barrister.
