Final arguments complete in impaired driving trial
The impaired driving trial of an Amherstburg man is now over.
Thirty-year-old Cole Rickett will learn his fate next Friday, March 27th.
Thats when Justice Bruce Thomas says he will render his verdict on the 10 charges Rickett is facing.
They include impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing bodily harm.
On New Year's Eve 2011 Rickett's pickup truck and an SUV collided at Walker Road and South Talbot Road.
Carolyn Dutta, 44, from Ann Arbor, MI, died as a result of her injuries.
The court heard testimony that Rickett had been drinking in the hours before the crash.
But police testified the Dutta vehicle crossed into Rickett's path on Walker Road.
