Man jailed for perverting the course of justice - Ascot


A man has today, Friday, 10 May 2013, been jailed for 15 months for perverting the course of justice in connection with the death of Simon Large.

Ryan Quartermaine, aged 21, of Mead Avenue, Slough, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court after admitting the charge at an earlier court hearing.

Quartermaine was part of a group of men involved in a dispute outside the Club One nightclub in Ascot High Street, in October 2012, which resulted in the death of 24-year-old Simon Large.

Mr Large was struck by a car driven by Ricky Clarke-Dilly, aged 22, of Grampian Way, Langley, who was found guilty of murder on 01 May following a trial and sentenced on 02 May to life imprisonment, with a minimum of 15 years.

The car, a Golf, had been hired by Quartermaine who was a passenger at the time.

Following the incident, Quartermaine texted his girlfriend to say his car keys had been stolen in the nightclub and told a police officer the same story when he was arrested.
