Defence attorney Steve McField asked for his client to be repleaded, citing only “a turn of events since we were here last time”.
Magistrate Kirsty-Ann Gunn put the charges again and Mr Anglin replied “guilty” to driving along West Bay Road in the vicinity of Avalon Condos on 23 May 2012 without due care and attention (careless driving) and driving under the influence of alcohol, with a alcohol-in-blood reading of .110. The legal limit in Cayman is .100.
Crown Counsel Matthew Coles said the pleas were acceptable and he offered no evidence on an alternative charge of driving whilst impaired.
Mr. McField asked the magistrate to delay sentencing. He said his client was willing to enter the programme offered by the court.
The magistrate explained that the DUI programme is run by the Counselling Centre. It involves six weeks of attending evening classes, after which the court is provided with a report of the defendant’s attendance and participation.
She noted that the next class intake would be in January. Sentencing was therefore set for 5 March.
Mr. McField indicated he would speak in mitigation at that time.
