Race caller pleads guilty to defrauding the Commonwealth

A NORTH Coast race caller has admitted to ripping off the Commonwealth more than $200,000 through dodgy tax refunds.

Rodney Fuller pleaded guilty in the Coffs Harbour Local Court on Tuesday to 46 offences relating to false claims made over a period of 13 years.

The majority of claims, made on behalf of himself and others, were worth between $20,000-$50,000.

For more than 20 years Fuller, who is based in Coffs Harbour, covered meetings in Grafton, Taree and Lismore for Sky Racing.

He resigned in September when he was charged with 30 counts of obtain financial advantage by deception, nine counts of producing false or misleading documents, five counts of defrauding the Commonwealth and two further counts of attempting to obtain financial advantage by deception.

He will be sentenced in Sydney's Downing District Court on December 11.
