Derek Kelly NOT banged up

Gutshot’s apparent criminal mastermind, Derek Kelly, was just given the following sentence:

- A conditional discharge for two years, the condition being that Derek Kelly will not contravene the Gaming Act in that period

- No fine

- A payment of £10k towards prosecution costs (thought to be in the region of £25k) – this to be paid in monthly instalments of £500

Hardly even a slap on the wrist, relatively speaking.

With the club carrying on doing much the same as it was but with the term "service charge" simply replaced by "voluntary donation", was it really worth all that fuss in the end?
