Suspicions of match-fixing in Ligue 2: up to 18 months in prison for seven defendants

In the case of suspicion of matches rigged in Ligue 2, the court has sentenced prison sentences or suspended sentences against seven defendants. The judgment was rendered this Thursday, September 13, 2018 after a hearing last June. Among the main implicated, the former president of Nimes Olympique, Jean-Marc Conrad, is found guilty of passive corruption and sentenced to three years in prison including 18 months suspended and a fine of 50,000 euros. Same sentence for Serge Kasparian, former shareholder of the club Nîmes.

For the former president of the Stade Malherbe Caen, Jean-François Fortin, the court went further than the prosecutor's demands by sentencing him to 15 months suspended sentence and a fine of 15,000 euros. His security officer, "Pilou" Mokkedel, was sentenced to eight months in prison. Two defendants were released.
