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.

I only came to this by accident following a trail from Google. This and its companion thread on Dave Bulmer and Celtic Music are compelling but nothing seems to have been done. Clearly the hope Mudcatters had of justice at the Crown Court has now evaporated, but if the gripes and moans I have read here have substance they should be acted on.

A contact tells me the Lincs Police have read what is here but are disincined to act in any way as "no complaint has been made". That might seem odd but if ther is any hard fact that can be put up then do it. If not then you have to give up now. For example the issuing of CDR discs as CD's must be of interest to trading satandards officers or the police for starters.

I am told the police were quietly confident until today so they might welcome another approach on another subject. My info is the arresting officer is one DI Stocking.

Good luck

I was hoping you'd enlighten us, Richard!

I assumed it meant that some trivial dotting of i's or crossing of t's wasn't done in the corrrect and prescribed manner, so for some minor technicality the prosecution case wasn't valid. Does "abuse of process" mean something more contentious than that?

As for other cases, mentioned a few posts back, we haven't heard any more about Pat Cooksey's, have we?

Yes, abuse of process refers to a fundamental impropriety, not just a procedural error. It being after midnight, good examples are not springing to mind.

If you brought libel proceedings, and lost, and then brought malicious falsehood proceedings on the same facts, you would lose for two reasons. First there would be issue estoppel (don't ask). Second, because you were trying to get a second bite at the same cherry, it would be an abuse of process.

Does that help?

DECEPTION CHARGES DROPPED BEFORE TRIAL


10:30 - 02 October 2003

A Former coroner and solicitor accused of deception offences has walked free from court after the charges against him were thrown out.

Neil Sharpley (52), who was once the coroner for Louth, was alleged to have obtained £47,000 from a client's estate and used it for his own purposes. He had been due to stand trial at Leicester Crown Court this week.

But the proceedings did not reach the stage of swearing in a jury to hear the case.

After three days of legal argument Judge Ian Collis ruled that Mr Sharpley could not receive a fair trial due to an "abuse of process" in bringing the case to court.

Abuse of process is deemed to have taken place when something is judged to be so unfair or wrong with the prosecution that the case cannot continue.

The individual facts of each case are considered when deciding if the method used to bring the case to court was unfair.

Mr Sharpley, of Westgate, Louth, had denied two offences of obtaining a money transfer by deception from his client John Lewis between February and June 1997.

Ex-coroner walks free as deception charges are dropped

Mr Sharpley, 52, of Westgate, was alleged to have obtained £47,000 from a client's estate and used it for his own purposes.
He had been due to stand trial at Leicester Crown Court , but the case never reached the stage of swearing in a panel of jurors. After three days of legal argument Judge Ian Collis ruled Mr Sharpley could not receive a fair trial due to an "abuse of process" in bringing the case to court.

Mr Sharpley had denied two offences of obtaining a money transfer by deception from John Lewis between February and June 1997. A spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service explained an "abuse of process" was something which could affect the overall fairness of a trial. He said the ruling was not particularly uncommon.
Neil Sharpley told the Leader he was relieved the matter was over.

He said: "This has all been a gross waste of public resources and money. I'm just glad the saga is over and the sooner it is out of the public arena the better"
A police spokesperson said the police were awaiting a written copy of the judgement from his honour Judge Collis.

She said: "Until we have examined the findings in detail and discussed the matter with the Crown Prosecution Service and prosecution council we are not in a position to comment on the case."

What breathtaking arrogance. What is happening to the legal system in the UK when crooks like Neil Sharpley are able to walk away from justice? From what I read the man had been dipping into clients accounts and was struck off as a solicitor by his professional association for that dishonesty. But that was a civil matter - didn't the Police have a duty to deal with the criminal side of this conduct, and by the same reasoning, didn't the court have a duty to deal with the criminality?? It seems that yet again the courts have failed in that duty as they do almost daily nowadays. I wonder like Guest (above) what happened to the money stolen from Mr Lewis and also how Mr Lewis and his family feel - do they think justice has been done? Do they think they have been treated "fairly" by the Court? It seems to be a misplaced direction by yet another barmy judge.   Mr Sharpley must surely be heading for a fall sooner or later as this sort of "slipping through the noose" cannot go without remark or eventual action - legal or otherwise.

"If you brought libel proceedings, and lost, and then brought malicious falsehood proceedings on the same facts, you would..."

...be a card carrying member of the anti-Bulmer cult. If there ever was a case to pursue against Celtic Music, the libelous falsehoods spread about Bulmer and Sharpley by the folk and "world" music pundits (who so obviously were trying the case in the court of public opinion on behalf of some very popular musicians, ie Jones, Gaughan, et al) have made certain no case can now be brought because of their prejudicing all those involved in the argument.

All this has ever been about is a fight among industry types over who ripped off whom, and who owes whom money.

Bulmer isn't the anti-Christ, and the purportedly wronged parties aren't saints. Nothing in life is that black and white.

Having returned to this thread and the Bulmer/Celtic Music one after some time, I find it interesting that there seems to be a revival or resurrection of apologists and revisionists since the trial of NS collapsed (on a technicality).

He said: "This has all been a gross waste of public resources and money. I'm just glad the saga is over and the sooner it is out of the public arena the better"
A police spokesperson said the police were awaiting a written copy of the judgement from his honour Judge Collis.

She said: "Until we have examined the findings in detail and discussed the matter with the Crown Prosecution Service and prosecution council we are not in a position to comment on the case."


    Note from Joe Offer: this appears to be a copy of a message posted above in 2003. I can't figure out why it was posted again.

That was an unattributed repost of a story from 13 years ago. GSS was lying by implying it was a recent case.

Geoffrey Chakwenya seems to have a sideline in managing Zimbabwean bands. These connections just keep getting weirder.

It's fairly clear that the report comes from the local Leader newspaper.

It's not clear that it dates back to 08 October 2003.

Sharpley had avoided a trial - ironically - because of 'abuse of process'.

Neil Sharpely 10:30 - 02 October 2003

A Former coroner and solicitor accused of deception offences has walked free from court after the charges against him were thrown out.

Neil Sharpley (52), who was once the coroner for Louth, was alleged to have obtained £47,000 from a client's estate and used it for his own purposes. He had been due to stand trial at Leicester Crown Court this week.

But the proceedings did not reach the stage of swearing in a jury to hear the case.

After three days of legal argument Judge Ian Collis ruled that Mr Sharpley could not receive a fair trial due to an "abuse of process" in bringing the case to court.

Abuse of process is deemed to have taken place when something is judged to be so unfair or wrong with the prosecution that the case cannot continue.

The individual facts of each case are considered when deciding if the method used to bring the case to court was unfair.

Mr Sharpley, of Westgate, Louth, had denied two offences of obtaining a money transfer by deception from his client John Lewis between February and June 1997.
now jack calm down and stop accusing people of lying

Dick, your post of 14 May 2016 says: FORMER Louth coroner and solicitor Neil Sharpley, who was accused of deception offences, walked free from court last week after the charges against him were thrown out.

You really need to stop this reposting of undated, unattributed information. I spent twenty minutes trying to figure out what this was all about, only to find that this was about an event that took place in 2003.

If something has been posted before, please give us complete information about where the information came from and the date it was created. Don't waste our time.

I renamed the thread so nobody else gets deceived.

That's all well and good, Don. Please fill us in on what the story of Neil Sharpley is now. That's what we need - not copy-pastes of the same messages that were posted in this thread in 2003. I really would like to know what's going on now.
