Driver risks jail
Friday, January 18, 2008
Bakafu Cham was recently convicted and fined D2000, in default to serve three months imprisonment after being found guilty of a traffic offence by the Bundung magistrate, Kumba Sillah-Camara.
According to the police prosecutor, Sergeant 1042 Kujabi, on or about October 23, 2007, along the Senegambia Highway, in the KMC, Bakafu Cham drove a private motor vehicle with the registration number BJL 1032 E, without due care and attention thereby causing an accident.
Bakafu Cham who pleaded guilty, in his mitigation plea, begged the court to have mercy on him adding that he is a first time offender.
Magistrate Kumba Sillah-Camara, in her ruling, said traffic violators have become rampant in her jurisdiction, and though he had shown remorse, anybody found guilty before her will not go scotfree.
She therefore sentenced him accordingly.
