Second Time Drink Driver Avoids Prison
Our client has avoided prison after being caught drink driving for the second time with a breath reading of 135. The sentencing guidelines for this time of offence suggest a starting point of 12 weeks’ imprisonment.
With our careful mitigation, the court was persuaded not to send him to prison. The impact on his young family would have been too great. Instead, he was ordered to undertake unpaid work and attend rehabilitation.
