The client was charged with, and pleaded guilty to, a single count of causing death by careless driving. The matter related to an incident that took place in August 2019 in which the client, driving his Rolls Royce vehicle in excess of the speed limit, collided with and fatally injured a pedestrian at Duke of Wellington Place in central London.
Following detailed written and oral submissions, the Common Serjeant imposed a Suspended Sentence and financial penalty in lieu of immediate custody. The client, who suffers with multiple health conditions, will now be permitted to return to his home jurisdiction.
