Man and woman appear in court over benefit fraud

A man and woman appeared in Norwich Crown Court in connection with housing benefit and income support fraud charges and fake tenancy charges.

Shannon Trett is charged with three offences, two of which relate to housing benefit. She also failed to disclose Charles Dersley was the father of her son.

The other charge says she failed to say she lived as a husband and wife with Dersley to make a gain from Income Support.

Charles Dersley is charged with making tenancy agreements to commit or assist in the commission of fraud.

Dersley and Trett indicated no pleas.
