Neal Gozzett successfully defends a motorist who faced an immediate ban for driving 85mph in a 50mph zone. She had pleaded guilty by post prior to legal advice and Gozzett successfully persuaded the court to re-open the case under s.142 Magistrates Court Act 1980 and vacate her guilty plea. He persuaded the Prosecution that it wasn’t in the Interests of Justice to pursue the allegation due to her medical circumstances at the time of the offence. After the successful submission to the court the Prosecution withdrew the summons and his client left the court with her licence in tact. This is a perfect example of how taking specialist legal advice can avoid driving bans.
