By BBN Staff:Dorian Pakeman, director of the Government Press Office may be in more trouble when he goes to court on March 10, for violating the terms of his bail.

Pakeman, who is scheduled to stand trial for charges of causing death by careless conduct for the traffic fatality that took the life of a Biscayne mechanic, Dean Dawson, back in March of 2016, left the country without first obtaining permission from the Magistrate’s Court.

Pakeman posted pictures on his social media account, showing an apparent trip to the US. However, his lawyer Brian Neal, in an interview with Channel 5, confirmed that the court did not hold a hearing to grant Pakeman permission to leave the country.

Neal said that he was unsure of the circumstance that led to Pakeman’s travel, but he knew that Pakeman did inform the court of his intention to travel. Neal said that Pakeman left before the court could hold the hearing, but was unsure if the trip actually violated the terms of Pakeman’s bail. Neal expects Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer to raise the issue in Pakeman’s upcoming hearing.

The Pakeman case has several intricacies, including an allegation that he was on cocaine the night of the accident; the police department misplacing his file, and allegations that the evidence had been tampered with.
