PCS sentencing delayed but further hearings scheduled

Sentencing of the guilty defendants in the PCS Events clocking fraud case has been delayed until April 20-21 at Liverpool Court.

Sentencing of John Murphy, Paul Arslanian, Christopher Graham Lunt, Trevor Gareth Jones and Simon Richard Williams had been scheduled for March 17. The five were convicted in February of a car clocking conspiracy that involved wiping a total of 7.5 million miles off the odometers of more than 100 cars from 2008 to 2014.

Liverpool Crown Court said Proceeds of Crime hearings for four of the defendants would take place on July 28, and a court spokeswoman said a further trial against PCS Events Ltd was scheduled for November 20, 2017, without specifying the offences.
