We acted in behalf of the client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.
We made submissions to the court demonstrating the client’s good character. She has never been previously charged with a traffic offence or any other criminal charges. Our client also showed remorse over the offending and, in fact, had stopped taking alcohol ever since the accident. She wrote a letter to the court expressing her disappointment over her own actions and the possible catastrophic consequences of drink driving.
The client pleaded guilty to the charges.
