(2009) Liberal Democrat Cllr. Daniel Martin


A Dorset councillor has appeared in court to deny benefit fraud.

Councillor Daniel Martin, a Lib Dem member of Poole Borough Council, is accused of using false representation to obtain Job Seeker's Allowance.

Mr Martin, of Kingcup Close, Broadstone, appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court to enter the plea.

The councillor, who was elected in May 2007, was released on unconditional bail. The case was moved to Dorchester Crown Court for a date yet to be set.

The charge relates to a period before Mr Martin was elected

I knew Mr Daniel Martin on a very intermate basis 4 and a half years ago as a then law student he may have broken my heart in the end but hes the most honest trustworthy person I have ever known hes not Guilty of this Crime and bear in mind that sometimes the Social Security can prosecute even those people who make genuine mistakes on paper. Mybe Love is blind some may say Lydia

A touching post (that's if you're not Daniel himself).
