LONDON (AFP) – Disgraced snooker player Stephen Lee will on Wednesday find out his punishment after being found guilty of match-fixing.
An independent tribunal last week found the 38-year-old guilty on seven match-fixing charges in what officials described as "the worst case of snooker corruption we've seen".
Top sports lawyer Adam Lewis is now set to deliver his verdict, according to the game's ruling body.
"The hearing in the case of Stephen Lee to decide the sanction took place today (Tuesday)," said a statement issued by the World Professional Snooker and Billiards Association (WPBSA).
"Adam Lewis QC will deliver his decision on sanction tomorrow (Wednesday)."
The winner of five ranking titles during his career, Lee was charged following an investigation into eight matches -- four at the Malta Cup in 2008, two at the UK Championship 2008, and one each at the China Open in 2009 and the World Championship the same year.
