Ecclestone son-in-law faces jail

Bernie Ecclestone's son-in-law is facing up to seven years in jail, according to reports in Britain.

The Sun newspaper said the F1 supremo's daughter Tamara, who is married to former trader Jay Rutland, is "sick with worry" after her 34-year-old husband was arrested, charged and bailed.

He faces a London court next month.

Rutland is accused of helping international drug baron James Tarrant avoid justice when he was on the run, having absconded whilst awaiting serious charges in 2010.

"The accusations are very serious and Jay (34) knows that if he is convicted he could end up going away," a source said.

The source said F1 supremo Ecclestone, 85, is offering his support.

"There is nothing that Bernie would not do for his daughters and he has been a pillar of strength to Jay and Tamara," the source said.

Rutland's spokesman said the 34-year-old "denies the charge and will defend it vigorously".
