A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a fake headmistress found guilty of fraud and false advertising.

Dr Tina Beloveth Powerful, 47, failed to turn up for sentencing THREE times since being convicted on June 19 for running a bogus business school.

Everest School of Transformational Leadership, which offered a range of courses, degrees and facilities on its website - but in June, Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court found there was no evidence it existed.

Ms Powerful claimed that the school was still in the planning stages – although this was rejected by the magistrates - and there was no intention to deceive anyone.

Since being found guilty, the 47-year-old she has skipped court three times to avoid a sentencing hearing - forcing Magistrates to issue an arrest warrant.

This means that once she has been arrested, she will be held in custody until her next sentencing hearing.

A date has not yet been set.
