Ian Harris, Head of the Crown Prosecution Service’s Complex Casework Unit in Wessex, said he authorised Hampshire Constabulary to charge Samuel Etherington, 20, with two offences of gross negligence manslaughter following an investigation into the death of Jasmine Allsop, 14, and Olivia Lewry, 16.
I have reached my decision after carefully considering all the available evidence provided to me by Hampshire Constabulary.
I am satisfied, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, that there is sufficient evidence and that it is in the public interest to prosecute Samuel Etherington for these offences.
Jasmine and Olivia have died in tragic circumstances and I would like to extend my very deepest sympathies to their families and friends.
