Rohan Dennis Fronts Court For First Time Since Death Of Melissa Hoskins

Former professional cyclist Rohan Dennis has appeared in court for the first time since being charged with causing the death of his wife, Olympian Melissa Hoskins.

Prosecutors have requested seven months to complete a major crash reconstruction, with Magistrate Simon Smart questioning the timeframe. Defence lawyer Jess Kurtzer also requested the bail variation of removing Dennis’s reporting obligations and this was approved.

Rohan Dennis stood silently as he listened from the dock and did not speak with media as he left the court.

The tragic incident occurred on December 30 outside the couple’s Medindie home in Adelaide’s inner-north. Melissa Hoskins, a mother of two, was struck by a car allegedly driven by Mr. Dennis, resulting in serious injuries and her subsequent death.

A public memorial service was held last month to commemorate Hoskins, who was a world champion and highly revered road & track cyclist.

Following an investigation, Mr. Dennis was arrested and charged with causing death by dangerous driving and driving without due care.

Dennis will appear in court again on August 6.
