The client had initially been investigated for drink driving which was not pursued after the client gave a no comment interview. The prosecution proceeded with fail to stop and fail to report and driving without due care. The Crown served footage of the defendant parking his car in the road where the incident occurred. The footage later showed the defendant returning to his vehicle and driving off at what would appear to be the relevant time. Sandra Cooper the reviewing lawyer noted that 37 seconds of footage was missing between the defendant’s car leaving the parking space and a unidentified vehicle leaving the road. It was also noted that there was no statement confirming that the time on the CCTV was accurate. A defence case statement was set out the issues with the continuity of the footage. The case was discontinued the day before trial.
