A husband-and-wife team of lawyers were accused yesterday of stealing more than $300,000 from elderly clients.

The Reverend Jaymo Durham, 47, and wife Keiva, 39, were charged in Magistrates’ Court with the theft of credit balances from Nancy Locke between December 18, 2017 and February 1 last year.

They were also accused of the theft of credit balances from Muriel and Loretta Smith between January 17, 2017 and February 1 last year.

The pair, who ran the law firm Amicus Law Chambers, were further charged with the theft of credit balances from Doreen Stevens between February 23, 2012 and February 1 last year.

Mr and Mrs Durham were not required to enter a plea as the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until April 1.

She released the pair, from Smith’s, on $25,000 bail and ordered them to surrender their passports.
