Lindsey Lobley secures acquittal and retention of licence for her delighted client who provided short notice instruction
The defendant instructed Lindsey Lobley to represent him in what should have been a very straightforward case which was complicated by offences being committed in West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. He had been convicted in his absence at two different courts of failing to provide driver details. He had not received any correspondence from the Police or court. Once he became aware of the case the conviction was set aside and the case listed for trial. Lindsey Lobley was instructed at a late stage. She with some persistence managed to obtain all trial papers the day before the trial ensuring that the case could be dealt with without need for an adjournment. Once at Court the defendant admitted a speeding offence and the prosecutor withdrew the failing to provide allegation for one of the convictions. The Court clerk would not permit the prosecutor to lay a speeding offence out of time for the Manchester offence so the defendant had a trial and was acquitted. The defendant therefore received 3 points from court. Since the dates of these offences the defendant had admitted two further speeding offences and if he had been convicted of failing to provide drive details, he would have totted and potentially lost his licence, resulting in the loss of his first full time graduate job. Lindsey Lobley was able to manage the multi area case (as two different counties involved) to ensure the hearing was effective and react quickly to the evolving events ensuring an acquittal and retention of a licence. Mr G was delighted with this fantastic result.
