No plea bargain: Vincent

6:38 am on 24 May 2014

The former New Zealand cricketer Lou Vincent says his match-fixing charges are related to things he has already admitted to the authorities.

Vincent and his former Sussex team-mate Naved Arif have been charged with more than 15 counts of match-fixing.

If the players are found guilty, it will be the first proven case of the result of a county match being fixed.

In a statement from his lawyer, Vincent says he remains accountable for the actions of the past.

Some media had suggested Vincent had made a plea bargain, but his statement says this is not true.

The statement says he won't be making any further comment, as they're subject to the disciplinary process.
