Facilitating conduct that corrupts the betting outcome of an event is an offence under section 1930 of the Crimes Act 1900, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
‘Conduct’ means any act or omission to perform an act.
Conduct ‘corrupts the betting outcome of an event’ if:
‘Betting’ includes placing, accepting or withdrawing a bet, as well as causing a bet to be placed, accepted or withdrawn.
To ‘facilitate’ means to:
An ‘agreement’ includes an arrangement.
You were reckless if you foresaw the possibility that your conduct would facilitate corrupting the betting outcome of the event, but went ahead with your actions regardless.
Duress is a defence to the charge.
