Anglin denies drunk driving

| 01/10/2012

rolly2.jpg(CNS): The government's education minister has pleaded not guilty to charges relating to a road traffic incident in May, including an accusation of driving under the influence of alcohol. Rolston Anglin is now scheduled to face trial next month in connection with a road smash that occurred near Avalon condos on the West Bay Road in the early hours of 23 May this year. Anglin is accused of exceeding the drinking and driving limit as well as driving without due care and attention. A third case of driving while impaired was also put before Anglin Monday, which the minster also denied. Represented by Steve McField, Anglin delivered his pleas from the dock in courtroom one early Monday morning. 

Reminding the magistrate of his client's position, McField requested a date in October so the case could be dealt with before before the Legislative Assembly resumed on 5 November. However, Magistrate Nova Hall pointed to the packed court scheduled and said that the earliest date she could offer was Tuesday 13 November.

Following the submission of his not guilty pleas, Anglin was bound over to appear on that date.
