Court: Teen Pleads Guilty To Obstructing Police

November 16, 2016

Appearing in Magistrates Court, 19-year-old Brandon Lopes pleaded guilty to driving dangerously, failing to stop for police, and obstructing police in the execution of their duties.

The Crown Prosecutor told the Magistrate that police had seen Lopes driving erratically and had eventually stopped him, but only after Lopes had collided with another vehicle.

Lopes also pleaded not guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply. Answering Magistrate’s Khamisi Tokunbo’s question about the alleged amount, the Crown Prosecutor replied that the amount alleged was around 27 grams.

The Magistrate set trial for the possession offence for February 2017 and set sentencing on the obstruction charge for the same time.

On the dangerous driving charge the Magistrate fined Lopes $1,000 and disqualified him from driving all vehicles for 18 months; and $300 for failing to stop for police.

Lopes was granted $3,000 bail and required to provide a surety.
