Death driver appeals his case

Posted by on Nov 4, 2010 in Local News & Alerts | 0 comments

The Court of Appeal has heard from Mandell Eugene Outerbridge, who was convicted for causing death by dangerous driving to Raymond Curtis.

Outerbridge is serving an 18-month prison term after a jury convicted him by a margin of 9 to 3. The tragedy occurred on September 6, 2008 on Malabar Road in Sandys — the victim was lying in the middle of the road at the time.

The report came via ZBM radio.

Arguing the case to the three-judge panel this morning was Defense lawyer Mark Pettingill, who complained that the trial judge failed to explain in legal terms to the jury, the definition of dangerous driving.

Mr. Pettingill said no driver such as his client at the time, could expect that a man wearing dark clothing, could be around a blind corner.

The case continues and we will update you accordingly.
