Elgin Drink Driving Not Guilty

Kept Licence
Elgin Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was accused of being in-charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit for alcohol. He'd initially pled guilty to the charge, and thereafter sought advice. We strongly advised that a plea of 'not guilty' was appropriate in the circumstances.

Our Mr Simpson attended at Elgin Sheriff Court on 30th August 2023 and successfully objected to a Crown motion to adjourn the trial. The Sheriff deserted the charge against our client (the equivalent of a verdict of acquittal), and he left Court without a disqualification. 

An excellent result.

 Kept Licence!
