Thu, 22 Nov 2012  08:53


Three people guilty of election fraud will NOT be sentenced as planned today (Thursday).

It follows the trial with conspiracy changes during the 2010 Douglas-East bi-election to get celebrity chef Kevin Woodford elected. 

 
40-year-old Gail Corrin from Douglas and 25-year-old Kerry Louise Rothwell from Onchan were found guilty of manipulating the proxy voting system after a seven week trial. 
 
57 –year-old Charles Buster Lewin from Crosby entered a guilty plea at the start of the trial which saw over 90 witnesses called to give evidence.
 
The sentencing that was meant to take place today has been postponed due to procedural issues.
 
Deemster David Turner will set a new date for sentencing, which has yet to be confirmed.
