I just received word from Victoria Police that the driver of the vehicle that caused John’s death has been charged with Dangerous Driving causing Death (a criminal charge.)
May 27th has been set as a date to enter a plea & to set a trial date.
I’ll keep you posted with any further developments.
Please forward this information to anyone I may have missed that will want to know about these developments.
Thanks to all for your patience with the slowness of these proceedings.
There has been a great deal of communication between myself & the office of the Crown Attorney. Also with the Victoria Police. I won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say it’s been difficult at times.
I have been in touch with the Restorative Justice people & will be advocating a community service sentence should we get a conviction. I believe this is the way John would have wanted it.
That’s all I can think of for the moment.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns and don’t expect an immediate response as I’m functionally challenged with email in general & large volumes of the stuff tend to overwhelm.
Thanks again for your patience & I hope to see as many of you as wish to attend the trial when it finally comes around.
