Litzow’s case heard
A MAN charged in conjunction with champion Toowoomba horse trainer Ben Currie has appeared in Toowoomba Magistrates Court.
David John Litzow told the court his lawyer had recently transferred to another firm which was representing his co-accused and so he would have to find another lawyer.
The 41-year-old Lockyer Waters man has not been required to enter any plea to one count of “fraud – dishonestly gain benefit/advantage to the value of at least $100,000” as the charge appeared on the court list.
No details of the case have been aired in court but police claim Currie had engaged in “systematic fraudulent behaviour” having sourced “unregulated horse supplement designed to enhance race performance” between November 2016 and March this year.
Magistrate Graham Lee agreed to adjourn Litzow’s case so he could engage another lawyer.
Mr Lee adjourned the case for mention back in the same court on October 16 and remanded Litzow on bail with conditions including having no contact with Currie or a third co-accused.
