Recent Cases at Penrith Local Court
The Magistrate in Penrith Local Court found our 52 year old client 'not guilty' of 'negligent driving' after finding that the alleged 'victim' may have caused the accident in question.
Our client's previous lawyer advised him that his chances of winning the case were 'zero' if he did not obtain an 'accident reconstruction report', which would have cost him $5,500.00.
Sydney Criminal Lawyers® won the case without any report which was completely unnecessary.
In Penrith Local Court, Sydney Criminal Lawyers® had a 'mid range drink driving' charge dismissed for a 43 year old Penrith man after police breath tested him on his own property.
The man was illegally breath tested after pulling into his driveway, stopping his engine and exiting.
The case is a reminder to police that they must follow breath-testing laws, including the law that they cannot test persons on their own land.
Another rule is the '2 hour rule', which says that a driver's breath must be 'analysed' within 2 hours of driving.
