No disqualification means client not driving whilst disqualified!
Nottingham crime solicitor Stacey Mighty ensured that her client’s concerns about his prosecution were followed up. The result was that the charge of driving whilst disqualified was withdrawn.
Driving whilst disqualified
Stacey’s client faced an allegation of driving whilst disqualified. This was said to have been during the currency of a driving disqualification until an extended re-test was passed. He denied ever having been the subject of such a disqualification.
The disclosure received from the prosecution did not give a date for when the disqualification had been imposed. The more detailed print out from the DVLA failed to shed any more light on the situation.
No driving ban
The only conviction that could have led to such an order being made was in 2015 where it appeared that our client had received a simple 6 month fixed term disqualification.
Stacey recognised that her client’s time was precious to him. She could have asked for the case to be adjourned to another day. Instead Stacey ensured that the original court file for that date was brought into court. This confirmed that there had been a driving disqualification without an requirement for an extended re-test.
As a result, the prosecution withdrew the allegation of driving whilst disqualified at this first hearing.
