Horsemeat Charges Man Escapes Jail
The boss of a slaughterhouse in West Yorkshire who sold horse carcasses to ``Italian restaurants'' without any record of where they were being sent has escaped jail.
65 year old Peter Boddy has been fined £8,000 for selling 55 horses without keeping a note of the purchaser.
He also accepted a further 17 into his business without documenting the supplier.
He admitted 2 counts related to meat traceability regulations - including one that the source of meat should be traceable from pasture to plate.
The manager of the slaughterhouse, in Todmorden, David Moss has been given a 4 month suspended sentence.
He admitted forging an invoice concerning the number of horses sold in a transaction on February 12 2013.
Prosecutor Adam Payter told London's Southwark Crown Court the controversy had ``undermined confidence in the meat industry''.
