Former Senator Curtis Richardson was charged with causing the death of Marco Warren by driving without due care and attention.
Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Nov 8], the 48-year-old was charged with causing the death of Mr Warren in May of this year by driving a vehicle, said to be a taxi, without due care and attention.
Mr Warren, a talented footballer who worked as a Programme Coordinator with the Ministry of Youth and Sport, was found in an unresponsive state on North Shore Road in Hamilton Parish.
Mr Richardson — who ran in multiple elections as a PLP candidate and served as a Senator and the Junior Minister for Health, National Security and Transport until he stepped down last year – was not required to enter a plea as the charges must be heard in the Supreme Court.
He was granted bail in the amount of $25,000 with a surety, must surrender all travel documents, and report to the Hamilton Police Station three times weekly. He is is due to appear in Court again in December.
