CORONER IN FRAUD TRIAL


10:30 - 29 September 2003

Former Louth coroner Neil Sharpley was due in court today accused of deception charges involving 47,000.

Sharpley (52), of Westgate, Louth, faces a charge of obtaining 25,000 from John Lewis in February 1997.

He faces a similar charge of deception involving 22,000 obtained from John Lewis in May 1997.

Both charges relate to money allegedly obtained to finance a music business.

Sharpley has denied both charges and was due to go trial at Leicester Crown Court.
