Drink Driving Case Won – Officer fails to show up at court!
I was advised sensibly about my chances at trial. I wanted to test my luck and see if I could get around a driving disqualification. I mainly need my vehicle for work and for my children. I was facing a 3 year disqualification due to a previous incident 7 years ago.
My solicitor was Marcus Johnstone. He was extremely professional and always on hand to answer any of my questions. Most of all, he was realistic. I knew my situation was bleak.
Part way through my case Marcus called me to discuss some recently disclosed CPS evidence. He had identified a couple of problems with the case against me (way over my head) and it started to look promising. At the first court hearing he had asked for CCTV, but this hadn’t been served. I saw copies of letters sent to the CPS requesting it. Slowly but surely M.A.J Law started to create a defence.
After all that I ended up winning my case because a police officer didn’t come to court! The CPS didn’t make it easy however, but Marcus put up a fight and wouldn’t back down. He came across so much better than the CPS, and the court found with us. My case was dismissed.
A great team of people. Would definitely recommend.
