Downing Centre Local Court – July 2015

Our client was a young man with an interest in surfing who instructed us to enter a plea in mitigation for the offence of ‘Drive Whilst Suspended’. Though absent from court and unable to be contacted because he was catching a massive break in the Northern Beaches, our Principal solicitor was able to persuade the magistrate to make an order under section 10, which means he was not convicted and no longer off the road. If only more matters could be successfully resolved while the defendant is off in the sunshine pursuing their favourite pastime!
