Perth Driving Under The Influence

Kept Licence
Perth Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was charged with driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs, contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 4(1).

This charge carries a minimum mandatory period of disqualification of 12 months and is treated seriously by the courts.

Our client could not afford to lose his licence. He had heard 'good things' about our Firm and instructed us to defend the case.

Following the provision of the Crown's evidence, we found a technical line of defence. We discussed the matter with the Fiscal's Office in Perth and managed to persuade a very experienced prosecutor that there was little merit in pursuing a conviction.

The case was discontinued pre-trial.

Our client kept his licence. 

 Kept Licence!
