Cannabis Driving Selkirk Case Dropped

Kept Licence
Selkirk Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was visiting his family in Selkirk over the Festive Period. Police had cause to stop his vehicle and, upon doing so, performed a roadside test for cannabis. Our client tested positive and was arrested. 

Blood samples were taken and he was found to have been over the prescribed limit for Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol. He was issued with a court citation and contacted our Firm for assistance having been recommended to do so.

We very quickly discovered a fundamental issue with the case. Our Mr Simpson contacted the Procurator Fiscal's Office and had a meaningful discussion of the case with a senior prosecutor.

The case was discontinued and our client was free to go before the case even made it to court.

 Kept Licence!
