Newark man admits causing serious injury by dangerous driving

By Advertiser Reporter

A Newark man faces jail after he admitted causing serious injury to two people by driving dangerously.

Charlie Gaskin, 31, of Tolney Lane, has been remanded in custody for sentencing at Lincoln Crown Court on May 22.

Judge John Pini QC said at the court on Tuesday he did not require a probation report, but adjourned sentence for a medical update on one of Gaskin’s two victims.

Gaskin pleaded guilty to two charges of causing serious injury.

Both offences occurred on Newark Road, North Hykeham, on September 9 last year.

Gaskin, who appeared in court by video link from custody, denied possessing a bladed article — a folding pocket-knife — on the same date.

He also denied two offences of failing to provide a specimen for analysis and driving without insurance.

Michael Cranmer-Brown, defending, told the court Gaskin could not provide a specimen due to the circumstances of the incident and insisted he had the relevant insurance.

The court was told Gaskin’s two guilty pleas were acceptable to the Crown Prosecution Service.
