Fraudulent Driver with Two driver Cards Narrowly Avoids Immediate Custodial Sentence
This driver, represented in the Crown Court by specialist road transport Barrister Helen Newbold, had managed to obtain two driver cards which he used a number of times over a 6 month period in order to avoid unnecessary tramping.
The seriousness of the offences saw him being sent to the Crown Court for sentencing with a very real risk of immediate imprisonment.
Helen Newbold set out the circumstances surrounding each offence and was able to take the court through the reasons why the judge should deviate from the sentencing authorities. As a result the client received a suspended sentence with a period of unpaid work and was able to return home to his family.
