The client was initially represented by a different lawyer at the Magistrates’ Court. During this time, he received a sentence of 15-month loss of licence to take effect immediately. This was a penalty far greater than the mandatory minimum period of 6 months.
Our client then filed an appeal against sentence at the Melbourne County Court and we acted on his behalf.
