Constitutional Court rejects Horváthová-Jakubisková complaint

The Constitutional Court has rejected a complaint put forward by film producer and actress Deana Horváthová-Jakubisková, against an earlier ruling which found her guilty of negligence behind the wheel which caused the death of a pedestrian in his 60s. Mrs Horváthová-Jakubisková received a suspended sentence from Prague’s Municipal Court of 2.5 years in prison with a four-year probation period as well as a four year driving ban for her role in the fatal accident at a zebra crossing. In the incident, another motorist gave right of way, but she struck the man as he was crossing.
