MR A LOWRIE (Young driver)
Dingwall Sheriff Court
Section 2 Dangerous Driving
I stood to lose my licence. I had been branded a boy racer by the police and felt hard done by. My solicitor pointed out all the errors in the prosecutor’s case and I was found not guilty. It made a big difference to me as I had to drive to see my gran in hospital every day at the time and if I had lost my licence it would have been devastating.
VERDICT – Found Not Guilty after trial
Glasgow Sheriff Court
Section 2 Dangerous Driving
Prosecuted Under Section 2 Dangerous Driving. This offence involved an allegation of attempting to run over a police officer. Plead Not Guilty and had charge reduced to a minor careless driving offence. Had 5 penalty points imposed and a fine and kept his licence thanks to Blackwater Road Traffic Law.
VERDICT – Reduced to a minor careless driving charge
RED LIGHT CASE
MR J BROWN
Glasgow Sheriff and Justice of the Peace Court
It seemed like I had to just accept the charge. My solicitor said that if I didn’t run a red don’t plead guilty. I didn’t and I’m glad I took his advice. My solicitor caught the police out everywhere in their evidence. Their fee was very reasonable as well.
VERDICT – FOUND NOT GUILTY AFTER TRIAL
CLEARED OF DRIVING OFFENCE
MR A FINNIE (Young driver)
Inverness Sheriff Court
Dangerous Driving (driving 115 miles per hour)
If I had even had 6 penalty points imposed on my licence I would have been disqualified as a probationary driver and I would have lost my job where I drove every day. Mr Mann did a great job for me and helped me keep my licence, and my job!
VERDICT – Reduced to Section 3 Careless Driving. Fine and 5 penalty points
NO DISQUALIFICATION ORDER MADE
MR L WOOD
Hamilton Sheriff Court
No insurance. Totting Up. Exceptional Hardship Proof.
I had some people depending on me and got in a bit of a mess. I could easily have lost my licence and was delighted to save it. My solicitors did a great job in persuading the court not to order my disqualification.
VERDICT – No Disqualification Order made.
CARELESS OR INCONSIDERATE DRIVING
MR T C
Dumfries JP Court
Section 3 Careless or Inconsiderate Driving
I was annoyed that I was prosecuted after my wife and I had been in such a bad accident on the motorway. Blackwater Law brought in expert witnesses to reconstruct the accident and prove that it had been an unavoidable accident. I was delighted with their professional approach from the beginning and I have still never had a point on my licence thanks to them.
VERDICT – Found Not Guilty after Trial
MR A CURRIE
Edinburgh Sheriff Court
Section 2 Dangerous Driving. (Driving at 111 mph in adverse weather in a 60mph zone)
I am employed in the motor trade and needed my licence. I was really anxious as it had been a bit of very ill considered driving and I knew I could easily lose my licence. Graham Mann did a great job for me. He negotiated a position with the prosecution that worked out perfectly in court. I had been recommended the services of Blackwater Law, and I wouldn’t hestitate to recommend them to others now that I have seen how well they worked for me.
VERDICT – Reduced to Section 3 Careless. Fine and Licence Endorsed with Penalty Points
