Speeding Glasgow Case Discontinued

Kept Licence
Glasgow Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our Mr Lyon dealt with this case back in September of 2010 and is one of the many historical cases that we are in the process of adding to our database.

The case followed the usual process: Notice of Intended Prosecution; Fixed Penalty; Citation; Intermediate Diet; Trial Diet.

This was vigorously opposed and the Court quite properly refused the motion. The case against our client was deserted simpliciter and he left Court a content man.
