An Aberdeen student has been given a warning after failing to tell a public body she had been charged and convicted of careless driving.
The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) imposed a year-long warning on Kathryn Forman’s registration following a hearing last month.
The 21-year-old admitted driving carelessly near the Toll of Birness on April 5, 2017, causing the death of Dorothy Cruickshank and leaving a 18-year-old paralysed from the waist down.
Forman, from Peterhead, was sentenced at Aberdeen Sheriff Court in August 2018 and was ordered to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work, as an alternative to custodial sentence.
She has been studying at Robert Gordon University and is enrolled in an honours degree in social work.
Forman failed to inform the SSSC that she had been charged and convicted of the incident.
In making its decision, the panel said it has “no reason to think” Forman would repeat the offence and was not considered a “risk to the public”.
