Racing: Date set for Fallon trial
Tuesday 19 December 2006
Six-times champion jockey Kieren Fallon, along with fellow riders Fergal Lynch and Darren Williams, will face trial in the autumn in connection with the City of London police investigation into alleged race-fixing.
Mr Justice Forbes today fixed the date of the trial at the Old Bailey to September 24 next year.
Fallon was not at the two-hour hearing as defendants were not obliged to attend.
Fallon, 41, Lynch, 28, Williams, 27, along with Miles Rodgers, 37, Philip Sherkle, 38, and Shaun Lynch, 37, deny the allegations against them.
They are charged with conspiracy to defraud between December 2002 and September 2004, by interfering with the running of horses to ensure they lost races, defrauding punters with internet betting firm Betfair.
Rodgers, a former racing syndicate director, was also accused of concealing the proceeds of crime.
