Drink Driver Rehabilitation Course Granted Dumfries Sheriff Court

Our client instructed an early plea of guilty be tendered in connection with a drink driving charge at Dumfries Sheriff Court. The intoximeter produced a breath-alcohol reading in excess of 3 times the prescribed limit. The Sheriff in this case was persuaded to impose the statutory minimum ban of 12 months, together with a referral to the Drink Driver Rehabilitation Scheme. This entitles our client to a further 25% reduction on his disqualification if completed within the appropriate timeframe. 9 months for a breath-alcohol reading of 70 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath (the limit is 22 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath) represents a positive outcome in the circumstances.
