Norwich lottery winner too ill to attend court for sentencing
A Norwich man who previously won £50,000 on the lottery has had his sentencing adjourned because he is ill, a court heard
Carl Gardner, of Peckover Road, Norwich, was due to be sentenced at Norwich Crown Court on a fraud charge and for breaching his Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
But on Wednesday, his barrister John Morgans told the court that Gardner was ill and could not attend court.
He said that Gardner, 40, had been in touch and would bring medical evidence about his illness to the next hearing.
Judge Andrew Shaw adjourned the case until March 16.
