Our client had been charged with driving a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit and being in charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit. The case proceeded to trial in the Magistrates Court in March 2018. Evidence had been heard at length from the prosecution witness and following the conclusion of the prosecution case, we made submissions that there was no case to answer in relation to the charge of driving whilst over the prescribed limit. The submission was successful and the charge was dismissed. Evidence was then given by our client on the other allegation our client was accused of, that being that he had been in charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit. Miss Cox successfully persuaded the Magistrates that the defendant’s defence was made out in that he had no intention of driving whilst he was over the prescribed limit. Our client was acquitted and awarded his costs back from central funds.
