Forsyth Barr's Hallwright guilty of grievous bodily harm
Guy Hallwright has been found guilty of recklessly causing grievous bodily harm to Korean motorist Sung Jin Kim.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison, but it is unlikely he will be given a jail sentence.
Mr Hallwright (60), a senior Forsyth Barr analyst, was accused of running over Mr Kim following an altercation in Mt Eden in September 2010.
The jury of four men and eight women took four and a half hours to reach their verdict.
Earlier in the trial, Mr Hallwright was discharged on a more serious charge of intent to cause grievous bodily harm, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.
Following the verdict, there was a brief discussion between Judge Raoul Neave and lawyers from both sides about reducing the charge to dangerous driving, which would carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
Judge Neave will hear submissions from prosecution and defence lawyers about the issue when Mr Hallwright reappears for sentencing in August.
Mr Hallwright said he was just trying to get himself and his daughter away from a “nasty" situation when he unintentionally ran over Mr Kim, causing significant leg injuries.
Mr Kim broke both legs and shattered an ankle, which required reconstructive surgery.
