Airdrie Sheriff Court Failure To Provide Not Guilty

Kept Licence
Airdrie Justice Of The Peace Court

Our client was accused of failing without reasonable excuse to provide a breath specimen for analysis having been suspected of drink-driving.

The case called for trial on 1st September 2022 and our Mr Simpson was in attendance. 

The Crown led evidence from two police officers but the Crown failed to lead a crucial part of the evidence and our Mr Simpson made a submission of 'No Case To Answer'. The Sheriff thought that there was a case to answer and our client's medical defence was put to the Court.

The Sheriff did not accept the clients medical defence but was dissatisfied with the Crown's evidence insofar as it related to the crucial part of the evidence that Mr Simpson had spotted earlier in the case.

The case against our client was held to be Not Proven. In effect, he was acquitted of the charge.

 Kept Licence!
