CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has pleaded not guilty to fraud and theft charges brought against him by his in-laws.

The Cody Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/29HJGQs ) that court documents say Ryan Tucker secured loans from his in-laws by convincing them that he was worth million, had a lofty inheritance and was part-owner of a landscaping business on Martha’s vineyard.

Defense attorney Nick Beduhn asked that Tucker’s $15,000 cash bond be reduced so he could go back to his wife, child and job in Florida.

The judge sided with prosecutors’ concerns about Tucker leaving the state and did not reduce the bond.

Tucker’s trial is scheduled to begin in October.
