Hempsons’ crime team works fast to minimise client’s sentence

Hempsons’ crime team represented a client accused of a serious driving offence.

Instructed with less than a week to go before the Magistrates Court trial and with the client facing a lengthy driving ban, substantial fine and possible custodial sentence, Amie Roadnight and Adam Smith instructed specialist counsel and were able to secure a penalty at the very bottom of the available range – 12 months’ driving ban and modest fine, which should have minimal impact on the client’s career as a broker.
