The officer stated it is likely to receive some points (5 or 6). It will not be prison sentence.
It hasn't proceeded to court yet. The officer mentioned that based on my statement and that of witness and other party, the sergeant might come to a decision without court proceedings. But it could also proceed to court and it might take up to 6 months for that to happen.
do you need more information to advise?
What are fixed penalty notices? Points on licence and fine?
What is a non custodial sentence?
thanks for your answer Tom.
I am a new driver (less than 2 years since I got my licence) so a FPN of 6 points (which the officer mentioned) will result in driving disqualification so it will not be a FPN as it results in disqualification. I see 3
1. 5 points and FPN (best case as I keep my licence and apply for naturalization
2. Non-custodial sentence (I keep my licence but have to wait for 3 years for naturalization)
3. 6 points (worst case as I will lose my licence and also have to wait for 3 years for naturalization)
Am I missing something here? Thanks again
sorry, one final question- can I apply for naturalization now while I wait for outcome? Should I mention this prosecution in my application? What are the risks.
Thanks very much! At least I know what to expect.
