Rehearing of case

The rehearing of a case against an Alexandra man convicted in 2006 of crashing into a police car and injuring a police officer will be heard in the Alexandra District Court on Thursday.

In March 2006, Shane Te Ihorangi Cribb (then aged 18) was found guilty by Judge Stephen O'Driscoll of careless driving causing injury to Senior Constable Neil Robert Ford at Earnscleugh Rd on July 14, 2005.

At the Alexandra court on January 16 this year, Judge O'Driscoll ruled there should be a rehearing after hearing from defence lawyer Russell Checketts.

When convicted, Cribb was fined $600 and disqualified from driving for six months.
