Tweed Local Court

Attendance Date:

Overview of Case:

Our client was charged with mid range drink driving after attending dinner with some friends.  He had a previous drink driving offence 18 months earlier which he received a 6 month disqualification and a $1000 fine.

The matter proceeded to a guilty plea at the second court hearing.  The minimum disqualification period for this offence is 6 months.


After detailed submissions were made and QTOP material and character references were tendered to the court, our client was convicted and fined $700 and was disqualified from driving for 6 months.  Our client thought this was a excellent result as our client had a previous similar conviction.
