“In stocks I had in my company, it would be over $ 10 million,” Wilson said in court. “It [was] not the smartest decision.
“I can’t go into the exact details of either company, but I can say that I no longer own any shares in any of the companies that I previously owned.”
Wilson’s final appearance in court almost draws a line under one of the game’s more bizarre off-field episodes in recent years, despite co-defendant Ben Trevisiol, former StatEdge general manager, being convicted on Friday.
There was a colorful twist in history when prosecutor Amin Assad reported that the late stockbroker Rene Rivkin was found guilty of insider trading for his infamous purchase of 50,000 Qantas shares after speaking with Impulse chief Gerry McCowan nearly two decades ago .
After Trevisiol announced last September, three weeks before the awards show, that Bellamy would be the winner of the Dally M Coaching Award, Wilson bagged $ 1975 in 1975 on the two bets he made shortly thereafter. He was at a pub in an eastern suburb with several friends on the opening night of the NRL Finals, and after passing the tip to them via Bellamy, they were among the ones to make a jump that grossed an estimated $ 20,000. Wilson’s bets were placed with Sportsbet on his own behalf.
“I had a couple of drinks,” said Wilson, who denied being drunk at the time, and mentioned that his actions were inconsistent with his religious beliefs.
Three weeks later, shortly after the Dally M Awards show at the Hordern Pavilion, he owned the NRL Integrity Unit, which bookmakers had pointed out to Bellamy’s suspicious money trail.
“If you’re doing the wrong thing, all you have to do is raise your hand and have it,” said Wilson.
“I knew right away that I was doing the wrong thing. If you do something wrong, the most important thing is how you jump back. ”
Magistrate Michael Barko put Wilson in good order for 18 months and recorded the conviction.
