Five years for causing death by dangerous driving

Friday 24 June 2022


A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to five years in prison for causing death by dangerous driving.

Anthony Hamon (pictured top) was sentenced in the Royal Court this morning where he was also banned from driving for 12 years.

19-year-old Kade Bougourd was killed after the car Hamon was driving crashed in April last year. Mr Bougourd was taken from the scene at Vazon to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, but sadly died as a result of his injuries.

Bailiwick Law Enforcement has released a statement following this morning’s sentencing:

“This was a complex investigation carried out by specialist officers, supported by the Law Officers of the Crown, using specialist equipment to establish the facts. 

“This tragic incident provides a sobering reminder to everyone that when you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are taking control of what can potentially become a lethal weapon. 

“It really is as simple as this; driving at dangerous speeds can kill someone. Driving when not paying attention can kill someone. Driving under the influence can kill someone. 

“Not only does someone who kills another while driving have to face the legal consequences, they also have to live with the guilt for the rest of their lives. 

“On behalf of Guernsey Police, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Kade Bougourd who lost his life in the most tragic and totally preventable set of circumstances.”
