Drink Driving case at Perth Sheriff Court. We were not initially involved at the beginning of this case. The client had appeared from custody at court and pled guilty to drink driving with a very high reading of 136 microgrammes of alcohol in his breath. The limit is 22 microgrammes! To make matters worse he had one previous conviction for drink driving. Sentence was put back for reports and he was facing a prison sentence. He then called us for help to avoid a prison sentence. We were able to establish that he had consumed a quantity of alcohol after driving and that the reading to which he had pled guilty was misleading. The client avoided a prison sentence and was delighted with the outcome.
