FS attorney expected back in court

A 36-year-old Bloemfontein attorney who was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run incident in which a woman was killed, is expected back in court today.

Cobus Bredenkamp was granted bail of R10 000 during his previous appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court.

He faces charges of culpable homicide and leaving the scene of an accident after Xoliswa Sandlhana was hit while crossing the N1 outside Bloemfontein last month. Bredenkamp allegedly fled the scene and was later traced to his house in Bayswater by police.

The court heard that Bredenkamp was previously charged with drunk driving but paid an admission of guilt fine. He also has a pending case against him for driving under the influence, although a court date has not been set.

A case was also withdrawn against him in 2001 in Pretoria West for the same offense.
