Superintendent of Police, Patrick Todd walked out of the Leonora Magistrate Court this afternoon freed of a causing death by dangerous driving charge after the Magistrate accepted the no-case submission put forward by his Attorney, Dexter Todd.
The senior Police Officer was interdicted from duty after he was charged with causing the death of pedal cyclist 64-year-old Conrad Alleyne in September 2018.
Todd was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time when he crashed into the man at the Boerasirie Bridge, West Coast Demerara.
The Magistrate struck out the driving under the influence charge after indicating to the Court that the Prosecution had failed to prove its case.
On the causing death charge, the officer’s Attorney made his no-case submission on the grounds that the Prosecution failed to prove key elements in the case that would have resulted in the causing death charge.
The Magistrate accepted the pleadings of the Defence Attorney and accepted the no-case submission.
The elderly victim, Conrad Alleyne was riding along the roadway in the evening time when he was hit down by the Police officer.
A breathalyzer test was done on the Policeman and it was found that he was over the legal limit for alcohol when operating a motor vehicle.
