Dangerous Driving Kilmarnock Not Guilty

Kept Licence
Kilmarnock Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of dangerous driving and leaving the scene of a nasty collision. 

The allegation was that he had tailgated a vehicle and thereafter undertaken it, side-swiped it, and made off. There was clear evidence of damage to that car but our client vehemently denied that any collision had taken place.

A not guilty plea was entered to the three charges and the matter eventually called for trial at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on 18th May 2021.

Our Mr Simpson attended and following a full-day trial, our client was found NOT GUILTY of all three charges.

The Sheriff did not believe that a collision had taken place, did not accept the evidence of the Crown witnesses, and acquitted our client.

Job done.
