Using corrupt conduct information for betting purposes is an offence under section 193Q(1) 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.
‘Corrupt conduct information’ is that which corrupts the outcome of an event.
Conduct ‘corrupts the betting outcome of an event’ if:
‘Bet’ includes placing, accepting or withdrawing a bet, as well as causing a bet to be placed, accepted or withdrawn.
‘Encourage’ includes to command, request, propose, advise, incite, induce, persuade, authorise, urge, threaten or place pressure on.
‘Communicate’ includes causing to be communicated.
You were reckless if you foresaw the possibility that the information was corrupt conduct information, but went ahead with your actions regardless.
Duress is a defence to the charge.
