Nyman Gibson Miralis Criminal Lawyers
Penrith Local Court
Represented by Solicitor.
The client was suspended by police for speeding over 45km/h. He was caught driving a few weeks later by police whilst suspended and also on his mobile phone. He was charged with driving suspended and driving with mobile phone.
The client was facing a criminal conviction, 12 month minimum disqualification, the risk of imprisonment and a significant fine.
After detailed submissions by the solicitor, the Magistrate dealt with the matter by way of s10 and did not record a conviction for the driving whilst suspended. The client was extremely happy as he avoided a criminal conviction and was not disqualified. A small fine was imposed for the driving with his mobile phone matter.
The solicitor is a criminal defence lawyer working from our Parramatta office. Like all of our defence team, he can be contacted 24/7 for urgent legal advice.
