"I am innocent" protested Lee Stephens following the shock announcement that he had received a 12 year ban from the profession he loves. Lee, a teenage prodigy who many thought would set the world alight has seen his career go up in flames, crashing and burning in a baize of glory.
Spectators were soon seen cueing round the court anticipating the conclusion of this best of 17 finale. The defence had in the earlier rounds attempted to bring everything to the table and denied that Stephens had pocketed a large sum of cash, insisting he had been eight balled by a Chinese betting syndicate known as the “Respottedblacks”
Prosecution lawyer’s baulked at this suggestion of being framed and attempted to pull apart Stephen’s defence of naming other possible culprits by insisting such safety play was a long shot and merely a case of kettle calling pot black.
Describing how his life had gone to pot since these allegations first arose, Stephen’s looked well and truly snookered following the delivery of the guilty verdict. A spokesman asked that Stephen’s simply be given a break to cushion the impact of the bad position he now found himself in.
As a result, a long rest awaits Lee Stephens, who now begins a 12 year sentence banned from working at his local Swan Vesta factory having been found guilty of match fixing.
