The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court allowed our 34 year old client from Mosman to avoid a conviction and a licence disqualification despite the fact that he was an ‘L plater’ and registered a blood alcohol reading of 0.07.
The charge arose when our client decided to drive home after having some drinks on a Friday night. He was stopped by police for a random breath test and blew a low range reading.
He had a learner licence at the time, but no ‘L’ plates were displayed.
Our lawyers assisted him with character references and a letter of apology to the court.
He also completed the Traffic Offender Program.
These materials were presented to the court on our client’s sentencing date, and lengthy submissions were made which ultimately persuaded the Magistrate to grant him a 12 month good behaviour bond under ‘section 10’, which means that he avoids a criminal record and licence disqualification.
This is despite this offence carrying an automatic disqualification period of 6 months.
