Motor Vehicle exceed limit caught on Camera
Our client was charged with ‘Motor vehicle exceed speed limit – not more than 10km/hr – Camera recorded – Individual.
Upon sentence, our solicitor Mr Hardy-Clements’ tendered subjective material and made submissions in relation to the client and the offence in question. He further submitted that the offence ought to be dismissed as per Section 10(1)(b) of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999.
During sentencing, the Magistrate considered Mr Hardy-Clements’ submissions, the circumstances of the offence, our client’s lack of traffic antecedents, subjective circumstances, urgency of a licence and plea of guilty at the earliest opportunity.
Outcome: Conditional Release Order s10(1)(b)
The Magistrate found the offence proven though did not proceed to conviction. The offence was discharged and the client issued with a 9-month conditional release order as per section 10(1)(b) of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999.
Our client was very satisfied with this result as well as his legal representation by Mr Hardy-Clements. This outcome is an example of the value of exceptional representation. Mr Hardy-Clements ensured that the case was prepared accurately and in a manner which ensured the court would acknowledge all material presented.
