Dangerous operation causing death

29 March 2016

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Fisher Dore appeared for Mr S, who was convicted after trial of 1 count of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing the death of two passengers in 2011. He pleaded guilty to a further count of dangerous operation causing death in 2009.

Mr S was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment for the 2009 offence, and 3 years imprisonment for the 2011 offence, to be served cumulatively. Mr S appealed his 2011 conviction, seeking to adduce fresh evidence. He also sought leave to appeal the sentences on the basis that they were manifestly excessive.

The Court was persuaded that the appeal against conviction should be allowed, and a re-trial was ordered. The application for leave to appeal the sentence in 2009 was granted to the extent that a parole eligibility date was fixed at 2 May 2016. ​
