By | October 9, 2019

One of New Zealand’s much loved
actors James Rolleston has been sentenced to 200 hours
community service and twelve months disqualification
over a car accident that left him seriously injured,
in the Opotiki District Court today. The boy star and his best friend
were seriously injured after the car he was driving crashed
into a bridge in Opotiki last year. Our reporter Rapaera Tawhai
with this report. He’s well known for his acting however today
he’s under another spotlight. The punishment given to Rolleston
is 200 hours community service and disqualified from driving
for a year, within those months
it’ll be evaluated further. July last year Rolleston crashed
his car into the Otara Bridge in Opotiki leaving him
and his friend seriously injured. Since the incident
he has always shown remorse. Since then he has gone
through a lot of recovery. He’s also been warning youth about
the importance of road safety. Rapaera Tawhai, Te Karere.

    He should be a good example to other boys, instead of drinking while driving 🙁
