Possibly our best day ever at Patterson!!
8 Cases defended/points avoided/withdrawn in one day.
1/ Senior Case Progression Officer Nikki Clarke defended a mobile phone case by getting it withdrawn by the CPS without the need for a trial. They agreed that they did not have a realistic chance of convicting our client.
2/ Senior Case Progression Officer Nikki Clarke – Police station Investigation for driving without due – no further action agreed by police.
3/ Case Progression Officer Hannah Groves – no insurance court case dropped – CPS agree insufficient evidence.
4/ Case Progression Officer Hannah Groves – Successful Exceptional Hardship argument on a client that had reached 12 points in three years.
5/ Case Progression Officer Hannah Groves – Ongoing court case for driving without due care and contravening traffic signs – where our client drove into the path of an oncoming off duty police officer – case withdrawn and client allowed to do the driver improvement course.
6/ Senior Case Progression Officer Ria Pleass – Section 172 failed to name driver – withdrawn without trial after CPS agreed they did not have a realistic chance of winning at trial – trial was listed for 2 weeks time.
7/ Senior Case Progression Officer Dominic Smith – due care and attention trial – client found not guilty after trial. Magistrates doubted the credibility of the purported victim under cross examination.
8/ Case Progression Officer Alicia Payne – No insurance allegation. We helped our client avoid penalty points and he was given an absolute discharge meaning the conviction was spent immediately.
