Johnson, of Sandleford Lodge Park in Thatcham, Berkshire, admitted causing death by careless driving.
He denied dangerous driving, which prosecutors alleged had happened when he drove afterwards with a shattered windscreen. The charge was ordered to lie on file.
The defendant did not enter pleas to being the driver of a vehicle and failing to stop after a road accident and being the driver of a vehicle involved in a road accident and failing to report the accident. Both charges were not proceeded with by the prosecution.Why not? It's not like he wasn't bang to rights on both, after all....
Ian Bridge, mitigating, said Johnson was "desperately sorry" for his "momentary inattention" to the road ahead.And his efforts to conceal his crime? Is he 'sorry' about that too?
Judge Peter Crabtree OBE sentenced Johnson to a 12-month community order, under which he must carry out 240 hours of unpaid work and pay £250 in prosecution costs. He was also disqualified from driving for 18 months.*speechless*
