Md. Man Accused Of Defrauding Clients In West Virginia

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A Sept. 11 trial is scheduled for a Maryland man accused of defrauding clients while working as a lawyer in West Virginia.

A Berkeley County grand jury charged Kenneth J. Ford, 37, of Baltimore last month with obtaining money by false pretenses, forgery of a public record and uttering of a public record.

Ford pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday during an arraignment in Berkeley County Circuit Court.

Ford formerly worked as a lawyer in Martinsburg. The West Virginia Supreme Court annulled his law license in March.

He is accused of forging a family court order and failing to complete legal services for multiple clients.

He remains free on bond.
