Senior Constable Kristian White is set to stand trial for the manslaughter of 95-year-old Clare Nowland, following a tragic incident where he allegedly discharged his Taser at her. The incident caused Nowland to fall, resulting in a brain injury that ultimately led to her death.

The trial, scheduled to commence in November, will feature crucial evidence, including confidential documents such as an affidavit from Assistant Commissioner Anthony Cooke and police training manuals. These documents are expected to shed light on the protocols and circumstances surrounding the use of the Taser.

The proceedings are anticipated to last four weeks, during which the court will scrutinize the actions of Senior Constable White. The case has garnered significant attention, highlighting the use of force by law enforcement officers.

In a related development, Clare Nowland’s family has reached a confidential settlement with the NSW government, resolving their lawsuit over the incident.
