Paul Lowe, a.k.a. The Windsor Swindler, has been booked in for an appointment with the beak at Reading next month - see the official announcement below. Well, it's hardly before time, is it?!
Now, I've been warned off making any remarks that might be construed as 'scandalising the court', a specific offence under the Contempt of Court Act 1981 that carries a hefty £750 fine, so let me just recommend that anybody with an interest in this case attend. After all, it would be an exceptionally good day for justice in the EFL community if the public gallery turns out to be absolutely heaving with interested humanity on the day.
Paul Lowe - pleaded guilty to ten Trade Descriptions Act charges (making a false declaration under section 14) and five Fraud Act (Fraud, section 1 & section 2) charges at his hearing in August 2008.
Ashley Arnold - pleaded guilty to five Trade Descriptions Act charges (making a false declaration under section 14) on March 30, 2009.
Reading Crown Court, at 10am, on 8 May 2009, has been set for both to be sentenced together.
By the way - this is NO April Fools day joke!
