Crawley Magistrates Court - Plea in Mitigation on a Drink Driving Charge

We were instructed to represent a young defendant whose lowest reading of breath at the police station was 83. Note that the legal limit is 35 and prosecution commences at 40 and above. The sentencing guidelines issued by the Sentencing Guidelines Council meant that the client was facing a mandatory disqualification between 17 and 22 months. 

After hearing the plea in mitigation by an expert barrister from our team, the court imposed an 18 month ban with a 4 month discount if the client completes a Drink Drive Rehabilitation Course (Driving Awareness Course) during the driving ban there were some other financial impositions.

The client sent us a tribute saying:

‘I would like to thank your team for really helping me out yesterday.’

‘It was very emotional for me but the outcome couldn’t have been better.’

‘Thank you for all your efforts!’
