We represented a client at Birmingham magistrates court who had been arrested for driving with excess alcohol. His breathalyser reading was 148 in breath. The legal limit is 35.
We had agreed a fixed fee of £50 to represent our client at the court.
The sentencing guidelines suggest immediate imprisonment for anything over 125 in breath.
Happily we persuaded the court to impose a fine and short curfew order.
Client mightily relieved!!!
