Mark Conorquie goes to trial for Causing Death by Careless Conduct

Mark Conorquie

Forty-one year old Mark Conorquie appeared in court today and was to hear his sentence for a charge of Causing Death by Careless Conduct. Conorquie pleaded guilty last Thursday, admitting that he knocked down and killed fifty-six year old Maurice Daniel Sedacey on July twenty-seventh, 2009. But today Conorquie asked to have the details of the charge re-read to him and explained that he only pleaded guilty because there was a loss of life. He then said, “I am not pleading guilty to Causing Death by Careless Conduct because this could have happen to anyone.” With that, Justice Herbert Lord, entered an equivocal not guilty plea and told Conorquie that the matter will proceed to trial. The case has been adjourned until March twenty-eighth. Sedacey was riding his bicycle on the Northern Highway when he was hit from behind by a Dodge Ram pick-up between miles nineteen and twenty. Sedacey was flung into the air, landed on his head and died on the spot.
