A man accused of posing as a doctor has pled guilty to a number of assault and fraud charges.

CTV Windsor’s Christie Bezaire was in provincial court Monday afternoon, when Darko Jovanovich pleaded guilty to seven offences. Fifteen other charges were dropped.

Police alleged the 32-year-old posed as a doctor and a paediatric neurosurgeon, involving five victims between the ages of four and 40. Jovanovich also was accused of trying to obtain $50,000 from a Windsor family by offering a surgery that could help a young child.

The investigation started on Feb. 19, when Windsor police received a fraud related call. The complainant informed officers that his business delivered $15,000 worth of furniture to a Windsor residence, but when a payment was made it turned out to be fraudulent.

Officers with the financial crimes unit executed a search warrant at an east Windsor home and seized the furniture – returning it to the business.

Jovanovich will be sentenced at a later date.
