Two lettings agency bosses in fraud charges case for Crown Court
TWO bosses of a lettings agency have been sent to Crown Court to answer fraud charges.
Keith Ranson, 40, and 52-year-old Melanie Cairns, former directors of R House, again appeared before Plymouth magistrates yesterday.
They are jointly accused of fraud by abuse of position. The bench committed the pair's case to Plymouth Crown Court.
Ranson indicated 'no plea' to a charge of committing fraud as a director of a letting agency by dishonestly abusing that position intending to make a gain or expose clients to the risk of loss.

Cairns denied the same joint matter, said to have been committed between August 2007 and May 2010.
The Crown Prosecution Service told a previous hearing that the pair failed to set up a protected account to safeguard the deposits of clients.
Magistrates released Cairns, of Antony Road, Torpoint, and Ranson, formerly from the town but now of Burgh Le Marsh near Skegness, in Lincolnshire, on unconditional bail until the November 5 hearing.
