Visitor Fined $1,500 For Driving While Impaired

June 8, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [June 8], a visitor to Bermuda, John Charles Osborne, left an additional $1,500 in Bermuda after he pleaded guilty to driving whilst impaired in Warwick on 5th June 2015.

That was the fine levied by Senior Magistrate Juan Wolffe after he accepted the guilty plea and convicted Mr Osborne of the offence. The Senior Magistrate also disqualified Mr Osborne from driving all vehicles for eighteen months.

Crown Prosecutor Carrington Mahoney told the Senior Magistrate that the police alco-analyer test showed that Mr Osborne was over the limit, and that Police had come upon Mr Osborne in the aftermath of a collision between Mr Osborneā€™s cycle and another vehicle.

Asked if he would pay on this day, Mr Osborne told the Senior Magistrate that he would and that he was also leaving the Island today.
