Mobile Phone Case Crown Adjournment Refused

Kept Licence
Glasgow Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was charged with using a mobile phone whilst driving. He already had 9 penalty points and worked as a taxi driver so this case was vitally important to him. The Crown suffered witness difficulties on the day of the trial and asked the Court for a further opportunity to prosecute the case at a later date. We successfully argued that if the Crown motion was granted it would mean that this denied allegation would have been hanging over our client for more than 2 years. The Court agreed that this was wholly unsatisfactory and refused to allow the Crown further preparatory time. The case was thrown out of Court and our delighted client retained his driving licence and his employment.
