Young Man Lucky to Walk Away from Accident
This young man was charged with an offence of driving under the influence of alcohol. The penalties available to the Court included a fine of up to $2,800.00, and a minimum period of disqualification of 6 months up to a maximum of 5 years. It also carried up to 9 months jail. The motor vehicle accident in which he was involved was going to force the penalty upwards.
After explaining to the Court how this event has changed him, and giving the court my client’s otherwise good character, the Court imposed only 8 months disqualification and a fine of only $1,000.00.
