Mobile phone text offence ends with prison sentence

A young female motorist who committed a mobile phone offence, causing the death of a 68 year-old-woman, has been sent to a young offenders’ institution for three and a half years. Nikita Ainley admitted texting at the wheel and causing death by dangerous driving. She also recived a 5 year driving ban and would need to take an extended driving test if she is to return to driving.

Judge Stephen Ashurst told her: ‘No message is so urgent that it requires someone to lose their life as a result of it. That, I’m afraid, is what you did on this occasion. It was your thoughtless use of a BlackBerry phone that has brought about a completely unnecessary death.’

He added: ‘This case ought really to stand as a terrible warning as to the dangers of that kind of obviously unlawful activity.’
