Salisbury Magistrates Court heard how Mr H was facing a charge of being drunk in charge of a vehicle. For this offence, he faced a potential driving ban of 12 months.
The charge being materially different to a straight drink driving charge, allowed the magistrates to use their discretion and draw back from imposing a period of disqualification.
A full plea in mitigation was submitted and following careful deliberation, the magistrates did use their discretion and merely impose 10 points on Mr H’s driving licence.
Location: Salisbury Magistrates Court
Offence: Drunk In Charge Of A Motor Vehicle
