Most clients receive penalty points on their licence and don’t particularly think anything of it. One of our clients recently received 6 points for allegedly driving at a speed of 92mph in a 50mph zone. At first instance, the client represented himself at Magistrates’ Court but having fallen foul of the justice system he was convicted despite his best attempts. He then instructed Caines Law to launch an Appeal in the Crown Court with a view to quashing the conviction on the grounds that he did not at any point travel at an excessive speed.
When the matter came before Croydon Crown Court, it was clear with our preparation and extensive research on the case, that the evidence against our client was extremely weak with clear discrepancies in the Police Officer’s statements. This was put forward by our barrister who made representations to discontinue the matte on the basis that the Police Officer had identified the wrong vehicle.
Not only was the matter thrown out of Court before the Appeal Hearing went ahead, but our client was also able to recover all of his legal fees and expenses! Another great result for Marc from our Motoring Team!
