Curtis Richardson Bermuda April 2021[Updated] Former Senator Curtis Richardson was charged with causing the death of Marco Warren by driving without due care and attention.

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Nov 8], the 48-year-old was charged with causing the death of Mr Warren in May of this year by driving a vehicle, said to be a taxi, without due care and attention.

Mr Warren, a talented footballer who worked as a Programme Coordinator with the Ministry of Youth and Sport, was found in an unresponsive state on North Shore Road in Hamilton Parish.

Mr Richardson — who ran in multiple elections as a PLP candidate and served as a Senator and the Junior Minister for Health, National Security and Transport until he stepped down last year – was not required to enter a plea as the charges must be heard in the Supreme Court.

He was granted bail in the amount of $25,000 with a surety, must surrender all travel documents, and report to the Hamilton Police Station three times weekly. He is is due to appear in Court again in December.

Update 4.11pm: The PLP said, “The Progressive Labour Party notes the very serious and concerning charge levied at former PLP Senator Curtis Richardson in relation to the death of Marco Warren. We have confidence in both the Bermuda Police Service and the judicial system to handle this matter fairly.
