Licence returned on appeal for night-before drink driving offence

Recent Cases

Our client was a middle-aged school teacher charged with mid-range drink driving after having drinks at a family occasion on the previous night. He was convicted and sentenced to the mandatory minimum 6 month licence disqualification period. He instructed us that he required his licence to assist his special needs students complete extracurricular activities, so we managed to achieve an urgent appeal listing within 2 weeks. On appeal, we persuaded the judge to deal with the matter by way of a section 10 no conviction, and our client’s licence was returned.
