I was charged with high range drink driving, there were a number of aggravating features (0.253 reading and a collision) and I had a previous mid range, drive whilst suspended and exceed speed of >45km/h
I really thought I was going to gaol.
Instead my solicitor persuaded the magistrate that a community service order was the right thing to do. The magistrate gave me 300 hours community service and 2 years disqualification – no fine and quashed the habitual offender declaration.
Hey, 300 hours equals 8 hours per week for 9 months! Good work!
Thank you for working with me on my case, you’re a star!
