Snooker: Stephen Lee found guilty of match fixing
LONDON (AFP) - Former world number five Stephen Lee was found guilty of fixing seven snooker matches on Monday.
England's Lee could face a lifetime ban after the verdict was confirmed by Nigel Mawer, the chairman of the disciplinary committee of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPSBA).
The 38-year-old's sanction will be announced at a separate hearing on Sept 24.
Lee, the winner of five ranking titles during his career, 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.
