Three people to be sentenced today in election fraud trial

Tue, 18 Dec 2012

Three people guilty of election fraud will be sentenced at Douglas Courthouse today.

Charles Stanley “Buster” Lewin, Kerry Louise Rothwell and Gail Rosemary Corrin will appear before Deemster David Turner.

Rothwell, 25, and Corrin, 40, were found guilty of conspiring to secure proxy votes for Kevin Woodford in the 2010 by-election.

That verdict was reached after a seven week trial which ended in October.

57-year-old Lewin pleaded guilty at the start of the trial.

The three were due to be sentenced in November but this was delayed after Mr Lewin disputed elements of the case against him.
