Glasgow Speeding Charge 78mph Crown Adjournment Refused
Our client was accused of speeding at 78mph in a 50mph limit on the M74 at Glasgow.
He was offered a fixed penalty at the roadside for 3 points and a £100 fine. As a previous client of the Firm who had always been successfully defended he refused the fixed penalty offer and contacted us.
We advised that one should always strongly consider pleading not guilty to a speeding allegation in Glasgow and in this particular case where he denied the offence that was the correct plea.
The case followed its normal course and at the Intermediate Diet the Crown intimated that they were prepared for the Trial Diet.
On the morning of the Trial Diet, the Procurator Fiscal Depute realised that certain evidence had not been dealt with in an acceptable manner and sought to adjourn the trial. This was vigorously opposed and ultimately refused by the Court.
The case was deserted simpliciter and our client was effectively found not guilty. No points and no fine.
This case was dealt with by our Mr Simpson at Glasgow JP Court on 8th May 2019.
