Dangerous Operation Of Motor Vehicle Occasioning Death

Attendance Date: March 2018

Overview of Case:

We appeared in the Rockhampton District Court with a client who was charged with Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle Occasioning Death which involved a heavy vehicle.


Our client pleaded guilty to the charge and we appeared before the court with him at the sentence. This was a tragic incident for everyone concerned. In preparation for court we organised a number of documents including references, reports and the certificate from the Queensland Traffic Offenders Program (QTOP). The Prosecutor was calling for a jail sentence of up to 4 years and a lengthy disqualification period. After lengthy and detailed submissions the Judge sentenced our client to serve 4 months imprisonment and a disqualification of his drivers licence for 18 months.

This was an excellent result in all the circumstances.
