Attorney's hit and run driving charges mentioned

Expert to assist defense

Simon Christopher Courtney appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday for an update on charges against him of causing grievous bodily harm, dangerous driving and leaving the scene of an accident. 

The charges arose from an incident on Sunday, Jan. 25, in which two tourists walking along West Bay Road were injured. 

The defendant, an attorney, was charged in April. 

Attorney Laurence Aiolfi said the defense was in the process of instructing an expert who could then assist in determining the next step. 

Magistrate Valdis Foldats set the matter for mention again on Tuesday, July 7.
