Drive Whilst Suspended Charge Ends in no Disqualification
Recently we appeared before Burwood Local Court in a Local Court Sentence acting on behalf of a client who had been charged with driving whilst suspended.
Our client, a 48-year-old man, did not have an unblemished traffic history, one of which some 10 traffic infringements since obtaining his licence in 2014.
We were instructed to enter a plea of guilty to the charge and proceeded straight to Sentence. Our client was at risk of being disqualified from driving for 6 months.
At the sentence hearing, Mr Hardy-Clements tendered subjective material, such as character references and an apology letter, as well as making brief oral submissions on our client’s behalf.
Outcome: Conditional Release Order (CRO) for 12 months
After considering all the material before the Court and submissions from Mr Hardy-Clements, the Magistrate found our client guilty of the offence, however without proceeding to conviction and imposed a Conditional Release Order (CRO) for a period of 12 months. The CRO is subject to the standard conditions of good behaviour.
Our client was extremely happy with the result and our representation of him. Jameson Law is committed to every client’s matter, no matter the circumstances. We are experienced in all criminal and traffic matters.
