Man to stand trial on fraud charges

The 30-year-old Simon James Gann will stand trial Monday on charges that he defrauded a Menlo Park woman of $1,900 by spinning stories about being a savant card counter and gambler who had lost his wallet.

When the woman discovered a history of similar crimes and reported him to police, he allegedly wrote letters attempting to persuade her not to testify against him.
