Stephen Halloran, a specialist Solicitor in drink drive cases, resolved a recent case at St Albans Magistrates’ Court for a client who provided a drink drive reading (119) which would usually result in the Magistrates’ considering a prison sentence.
Due to Lawtons being expert Solicitors in drink and driving cases, the Prosecution accepted the findings of our consultants report. This dealt with a calculation to establish the reading at the time of driving, not as the Prosecution initially sought to argue – at the time of providing the specimen of breath.
Our experience in dealing with drink driving cases ensured that the client only received a 12 month driving ban (to be reduced further if a course is completed) and a £100 fine. The situation he faced when initially charged was radically different to the favourable outcome our leading drink drive lawyers achieved.
