Our client was facing charges of Dangerous Driving and Exceed Speed Limit at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court. Although he admitted to the speeding charge, he was however disputing whether his manner of driving was indeed dangerous considering all the circumstances.
Shaun Pascoe provided legal representation for the client. He negotiated with the prosecution prompting for the withdrawal of the Dangerous Driving charge. This was a good result as the remaining speeding charge does not carry a prison term (unlike with Dangerous Driving) and a fine for this offence will also not be as excessive.
The magistrate eventually imposed a modest fine and a licence suspension for 12 months which is the statutory minimum period.
