Dangerous Driving Alloa Sheriff Court

Kept Licence
Alloa Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of dangerous driving, failing to report an accident, assault, and failing to provide the name of the driver. A very serious collection of charges.

For reasons that we are not permitted to explain, this case was extraordinarily complicated.

Ultimately, following months of discussions with the Crown, the charge of dangerous driving was reduced to careless driving, and all other charges (save the assault) were not insisted upon. 

Our Mr Simpson appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court on 31st January 2022 and addressed the Court extensively in mitigation. The Sheriff - with considerable hesitation - refrained from disqualification and instead imposed 9 penalty points on our client's licence and fined him a fairly hefty amount.

Our client was very relieved to have retained his licence and liberty.

An exceptional outcome in an extremely complicated case.

 Kept Licence!
