Phony audiologist in jail
October 23, 2013
A man who falsely claimed to be audiologist and his wife turned themselves in Tuesday after police showed up to arrest them at their Atascadero home.
On Monday, San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Jacquelyn Duffy issued arrest warrants after Aaron and Anja Marquist failed to appear at a felony hearing. In addition, Duffy increased their bail to $1 million each. The couple remains in jail.
Aaron Marquis, 46, is accused of falsely claiming to be an audiologist. His wife Anja Marquis, 39, is also charged with fraud. Both pled not guilty.
Staff at the Marquis’ Advanced Hearing Aid Center continue to see patients and say they plan to bring a licensed audiologist in to the office in the future.
A pre-preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 28.
