A 52-year-old Harpenden man, with power of attorney over his mother’s affairs, has appeared before a judge after being accused of defrauding her.
Ian Leonard, of Lilac Way, is accused of six offences involving alleged fraud and converting or transferring criminal property to do with her money and estate.
The charges were not put to him today (Friday) when he appeared at St Albans Crown Court for a preliminary hearing and he was further remanded on bail until 21 October.
Judge John Plumstead made it a condition of his bail that he must not make any deals, such as re-mortgaging or selling major assets.
Mr Leonard faces two allegations of fraud, by making false representations, between September 2012 and August 2015.
