5 Cases Withdrawn In Just One Week

 

We Go Further To Win For Our Clients

We are fortunate to employ many great solicitors & case progression officers in our team, but every once in a while, individual successes stand out. This is one such exceptional performance.

Our star case progression officer Jason Rosser had 5 cases withdrawn before trial in just one week!

Many law firms out there will tell you there is little point in making representations behind the scenes to try to persuade the prosecution to drop the case. They will tell you just to turn up at trial and hope for the best. This is why we continue to buck the trend and set new standards in motoring law.

Case 1 – No Insurance

Mr AP – case withdrawn by the Police – driving without insurance.

Client was accused by the Police of driving without insurance as he was not driving in accordance with a licence. Client had a provisional licence. Insurance companies cannot refuse cover on this basis under s151 Road Traffic Act 1988, and representations were made to the insurance company to confirm cover. Cover was confirmed by the insurance company. Representations were then made to the Police who subsequently agreed to withdraw the case.

Case 2 – Using A Mobile Phone

Mr YI – case withdrawn the CPS – using a mobile phone whilst driving – Defence Costs Order granted.

Client was seen by Police with a mobile phone in his right hand. However, there was no evidence of any interactive telecommunications. As the Crown could not prove the ‘use’ element beyond reasonable doubt, the was not a realistic prospect of conviction. Representations were made to the CPS, who subsequently agreed to withdraw the case. The result was of critical importance to this client, who would have lost his employment as a taxi driver with the imposition of 6 penalty points.

Case 3 – Using A Mobile phone

Mr AW – case withdrawn by the CPS – using a mobile phone whilst driving – Defence Costs Order granted.

Client was accused by Police of using a mobile phone whilst driving. The phone was in a cradle and was being used a sat nav at the time. Representations made to the CPS on the basis that the phone was neither being used nor was it handheld. The CPS agreed to withdraw the case.

Case 4 – Speeding

Mr MA – case withdrawn by the Police – speeding.

Client was a senior doctor on his day off. He suddenly received a call from the hospital as there was a medical emergency with a patient and they required his expertise. He rushed towards the hospital and was caught speeding by a camera. Representations were made to the Police that this was a genuine medical emergency. The Police agreed to withdraw the case on public interest grounds.

Case 5 – Using A Mobile While Driving

Ms VP – case withdrawn by the Police – using a mobile phone whilst driving

Client was streaming music via her mobile phone. However, this had been set up before she started driving and the phone was in a cradle, so was not handheld. To be guilty of an offence of using a mobile phone whilst driving the phone must be handheld and used for an interactive telecommunication purpose. Representations were made to the Police on this basis who agreed to withdraw the case.
