Timothy David Prad arrives in court Tuesday.

Prad appears on breach charge

Man charged in fatal hit-and-run faces breach of probation charges

The Bowser resident who was charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident that took the life of 48-year-old cyclist Paul Bally appeared in court Tuesday for a breach of his bail conditions.

Timothy David Prad appeared by himself in Supreme Court for Breach of undertaking or recognizance dating from Jan. 18, 2015 for allegedly consuming alcohol.

While Crown counsel noted Prad only received his disclosure (information) late last week, Prad said he was still in the process of securing a lawyer for this charge.

The judge reminded him the breach had nothing to do with his other offence – failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm.

Bally was struck on his bike by a southbound vehicle on Highway 19A near Curran Road in Fanny Bay last December.

Acting on a tip received through CrimeStoppers, Comox Valley RCMP attended a property in the area and located the truck at Prad’s residence.

He was taken into police custody Dec.17 and charged a day later.

He was released on recognizance and granted a $2,000 bail with conditions.

Prad was given an adjournment until Thursday where he will appear in front of a judge for the breach charge along with his initial charge.

The sentence for his original charge carries a maximum charge of life in prison.
