Driving Whilst Disqualified Client Avoids Custodial Sentence At Buxton Magistrates Court

Forrest Williams Motoring Solicitors


A client who was caught driving whilst disqualified following a drink driving conviction has avoided a custodial sentence.


The client, who was continuing to drive for work, knew that he was in grave danger of being sentenced to a prison sentence.


At his initial hearing, he was represented by specialist motoring lawyers Forrest Williams, and entered his guilty plea.  The magistrates at Buxton Magistrates Court felt that the matter was so serious that a custodial sentence had to be considered, and they adjourned the case for a sentencing hearing following a probation report.


The anxious client was terrified of the effect a custodial sentence would have on his family, who relied upon him to work and provide an income.


Sympathetic magistrates and a strong mitigation resulted in the client being given a suspended sentence, a result he was delighted with.


If you are due to appear at Court in relation to a motoring offence, please do not hesitate to contact Forrest Williams for free initial advice.
