Dr. Frank’s trial rescheduled

Former government minister Frank McField has had his Summary Court trial rescheduled for three days starting Tuesday, 6 November.

The trial had been listed for last Monday, 24 September, but could not go ahead on that day. On Thursday, after hearing from Defence Attorney Clyde Allen and Crown Counsel Kirsty-Ann Gunn, Magistrate Grace Donalds set the new date.

Dr. Frank pleaded not guilty earlier this year to charges arising from an incident in the early hours of 15 September 2006 in the vicinity of a police roadblock along Shamrock Road in Savannah.

The charges include disorderly conduct and assaulting police.

Dr. Frank faces two other charges, disorderly conduct and threatening violence, relating to an incident on 9 November, 2006, on the road informally known as Harquail By-pass. This matter is not yet on a trial list.

None of the charges in either incident alleges any driving offence.

Dr. Frank was elected as one of the four George Town MLAs in 1996 and again in 2000. He served as Minister for Community Services, Youth, Sports and Gender Affairs from November 2001 until the general elections of May 2005.
