If you, or someone you know, is charged with drink driving it is important to remember that it is only an allegation. If established at court, however, a guilty party will face:
The impact of a conviction can be life changing. Therefore, it is important that you get expert, independent legal advice from those with the experience and knowledge of such cases.
Last year, we represented a client faced with a drink driving allegation. He was found by officers in a car park with the engine on sleeping in the driver’s seat and there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from him. His position, which clearly was not believed by the officers, was that he was locked out of his nearby house and was seeking refuge until his partner came home from nightshift. After the trial, he was acquitted by the court who clearly did believe his version of events!
