Drink drive offence – case

Our client was charged with drink driving as a result of a high reading of alcohol recorded in their breath, which if found guilty would have meant being disqualified for over 2 years. We managed to persuade the prosecutor on the day of trial, that our client had a technical defence to the offence but would admit to the lesser offence of being drunk in charge of a vehicle.

As a result of this the prosecution withdrew the drink driving offence and replaced it with the other. This enabled us to skilfully mitigate and persuade the sentencing bench to not disqualify our client and give her 8 penalty points instead.

If you need representation for drink driving or any other motoring/driving offence then please contact our office we might be able to make the difference.
