Kingston attorney, Patrick Bailey, is to appear in court next week Wednesday after being charged with forgery and conspiracy to defraud in relation to the sale of a property in 1996.

He was taken into custody yesterday and granted $1 million bail.

Head of the Fraud Squad Superintendent Anthony McLaughlin says it is alleged that he was retained by Stafford Dixon to sell a property valued at $25 million.

It is alleged that Bailey instead transferred the property to a company.

Bailey’s arrest follows that of two prominent lawyers who have also been charged for fraud.

Attorneys Harold Brady and Michael Lorne are before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on allegations of defrauding millions.
