Traffic Infringements – Discharged 2/3
Our client had 177 infringement warrants totalling almost $50,000 listed at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court.
We acted on the client’s behalf. He applied for a discharge of two-thirds of the outstanding fines on the basis of the client’s mental health issues during the period in which the fines had been accrued.
The magistrate was persuaded and discharged two thirds of the client’s fines. For the remaining outstanding amount, he put our client on an instalment order at a rate of $100 every 2 weeks.
