Ms Donnelly said Mr Thorman had not contributed to the crash but Bills' lies that he had been doing a wheelie at the time had aggravated the offence.He also pleaded guilty to drink driving and failing to stop after the accident.Bills admitted taking cocaine the night before, but prosecutor Catherine Donnelly said the Crown could not contradict his claim that he wasn't affected by the drug at the time of the crash.Since the enforcement began at the end of last year, 18 youths in the area have been dealt with through community resolution.
