UK boxer Amir Khan cleared of dangerous driving chargesNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:45 am ICT by admin
Geoffrey Hatton, 55, suffered a broken leg when he was hit by Khan’s BMW 6-series convertible on a pelican crossing.
The jury at Bolton Crown Court agreed with Khan’s argument that his driving was careless, but not dangerous.
Khan was impassive as the jury returned a verdict of not guilty of dangerous driving, but guilty of careless driving.
Judge Steven Everitt banned Khan from driving for six months and fined him 1,000 pounds.
“I always said I did not drive dangerously and it proved today I didn’t. I always said I was careless the way I drove and I’m sorry over what happened,” The Telegraph quoted Khan, as saying. (ANI)
