You may remember that the 15-year-old who was allegedly driving the car that hit and eventually killed Clea Rose was charged with manslaughter, among other things.
You may also remember that he declined to enter a plea to the charge at the initial hearing (I feel certain there was some discussion of this here but google is failing me today).
Well ABC brings us the news that Magistrate John Burns is not impressed with this failure to enter a plea, particularly since the charges were laid nearly a month ago.
He has ordered the boy’s defence team to enter a plea on Friday, when they are next due to appear in court.
Well with that report going on aboout all those delays and with the nature of the case I don’t blame Mr Burns for making the the little bugger plea!
Should David Eastman face a retrial?
