Singer Dara Rolins lands suspended sentence for killing bike rider


A court in Prague on Monday handed pop singer Dara Rolins a suspended sentence of two years in prison for causing an accident that killed a 58-year-old motorcycle rider. The court said that the Slovak-born, Prague-based signer was driving in the opposite lane of the road when the accident happened, on the outskirts of Prague in 2010. Her car then crashed into the man who later died in hospital. The court also took the 39-year-old singer’s driver’s licence and sentenced her to pay some four million crowns in damages. Ms Rolins’ lawyer said they would appeal the verdict.
