A Watford man has received seven convictions after falsely describing himself as an architect on LinkedIn and with Companies House

"They understood I was an idiot and were as lenient as they could be," - Sohail Chohan, the convicted man, told Architet's Journal.

Sohail Chohan pleaded guilty in December at Westminster Magistrates Court to separate charges of misusing the title ‘architect’ on social media, with Companies House, on his website and company drawings. As well as Chohan being convicted, his one-man business, Sterling Design and Management, was also convicted for the same seven offences – although magistrates chose not to punish him for these convictions separately. 

Chohan told the AJ that his son, who was doing A-levels at the time, had set up his LinkedIn profile and website and that he had never seen either of them.
