Dozens of emails with false headers, months of false procedure. The Midi Dispatch recounts in its edition of the day how the investigators of the judicial police confused a young man of 28 who was pretending to his partner for a Toulouse criminal lawyer.

It was the lawyer victim of this identity theft who gave the alert after receiving an email from his pseudo-client asking him about his case, a financial dispute. Except the lawyer had never heard of her. The defender with whom she exchanged was none other than her companion, who feared that the case would weigh on her couple and wanted to reassure her. This man, originally from the west of Toulouse, had told him at the same time that the lawyer was a childhood friend who defended them for free.

The suspect must now find a real lawyer for his appearance before the criminal court.
