Travel denied in driving death case

Mention set for 29 September

Brook Barbara Nowak, 18, who
appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday in connection with charges relating to a
fatal accident on 3 August, was denied application to vary her bail conditions
so that she could travel to school in Canada.

Magistrate Nova Hall denied the
application by attorney John Furniss and continued bail on the same terms as
before; her bail is $10,000.

She was directed to return to court
for mention of the matter again on 29 September.

Nowak faces three charges.

The first is causing death by
dangerous driving as a result of allegedly driving dangerously on the Esterley
Tibbetts bypass and causing the death of Feder Ann Faustino, who was a
passenger in another car.

The second charge is driving under
the influence of alcohol. She is alleged to have unlawfully driven after having
consumed alcohol in such quantity that her blood-alcohol level exceeded “the
prescribed limit of .100 milligrams, to wit – .180 millilitres.”

She is also charged with driving a
motor vehicle when she had allegedly consumed alcohol in such quantity that the
level in her blood exceeded the prescribed limit, thereby causing the death of
Ms Faustino. In that charge, her blood-alcohol level is specified as “.180 milligrams
of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood”.
