Solicitors Near Me Brisbane achieved a first-rate outcome for our client at Brisbane Magistrates Court earlier this month.
Our client was charged with High Range Drink Driving, after having blown a reading of 0.180.
This was our client's first DUI charge.
Given our client provided a blood alcohol reading of 0.150 or above, they were not eligible to apply for a DUI Drink Driving Work Licence.
The cut off for DUI Work Licence eligibility is 0.150.
Due to our client's reading, they faced a maximum licence disqualification of a lifetime disqualification.
The Mandatory minimum licence disqualification for readings of 0.150 and above is 6 months.
Again, our client had a reading of 0.180.
We prepared detailed submissions of the relevant legislation and case law.
We made solid verbal submission to the Magistrate.
We were successful in persuading the Magistrate to impose no more than a 7 month licence disqualification and a modest fine.
Our client was ecstatic.
