Road Traffic Act 1988, Section 40A(d) Not Guilty
Our client was charged with a contravention of the Road Traffic Act 1988 Section 40A(d). This offence can be dealt with quite seriously by the Courts and having previously been represented by a general criminal defence practice transferred to our Firm for our recognised expertise.
We became involved fairly late in the day but were able to find a technical line of defence and discussed the case in detail with a senior Procurator Fiscal Depute at Airdrie.
The case had rumbled through the Courts for almost two years, the can being kicked down the road for a significant time until we got involved.
Our expertise and knowledge permitted the discussions to take place with the Crown.
This case is a very good example of the difference between our specialist Firm and a general criminal practice.
The Crown accepted our submissions and decided that they would not proceed with the case.
The case was discontinued and our client was understandably delighted with the swift and complete resolution.
This matter was dealt with by our Mr Simpson.
