By BBN Staff: United Democratic Party (UDP) talk show host and newspaper editor, Alfonso Noble, today appeared in court.
He was ordered before Justice Colin Williams regarding the 2016 death of Gilbert “Thready Tyson” Myers.
Noble, represented by Herbert Panton, pled guilty to the charge of causing death by careless conduct.
For this he was fined $3,000.
On the night of December 24th, 2016 Noble was driving a truck which knocked Myers off his bicycle near mile four of the George Price Highway.
He was originally charged with ‘manslaughter by negligence’, ‘causing death by careless conduct’, ‘failure to provide a specimen’ and ‘drove a motor vehicle without due care and attention’.
Readers will recall that Noble’s lawyer had indicated that he was a Jehovah’s Witness and was unable to provide a specimen.
Today’s proceedings mark the end of Noble’s legal issues regarding the matter but not for the victim’s children and wife who continue to grieve his passing.
