Speeding Trial Deserted By Court Crown Motion Refused
Our client was accused of speeding at 80mph in a 50mph limit on the M8 near junction 24. As a chaffeur his licence could not accomodate any penalty points or Elvis would be walking himself to the Hydro... We were instructed and the matter called for trial in Glasgow Justice of the Peace Court. It transpired that only one police witness had turned up and the Crown made a motion to adjourn. This was vigorously opposed and the Court upheld our opposition and deserted the matter simpliciter. The legal effect being that he was acquitted of the charge and kept a nice, clean driving licence. Elvis has left the building (in a limo). For what it's worth, the Crown had no realistic prospect of ever securing a conviction as the case struck us as being ill conceived. Our client was a thoroughly nice chap who deserved the outcome that he received.
This case called before Glasgow JP Court on 29th November 2017 and was one of three cases successfully dealt with by our Mr Simpson on that day.
