Edinburgh Speeding Charge Dropped
Our client was charged with doing a rather nippy 47mph in a 20mph limit.
We were instructed to defend the charge and we in-gathered all the evidence in the case. Reviewing the evidence, there were a number of deficiencies in the Crown case.
The case was put off on several occasions due to the coronavirus pandemic and was finally due to call for trial on 16th September 2021.
Our Mr Simpson had a telephone call with the Procurator Fiscal Depute in charge of the case and, following some gentle persuasion, the case was deserted due to the problems that we had identified at the outset.
Our client was understandably delighted.
