my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did they not ask sample at the station please>
Sorry I was in Court.
Ok, so the Police lied.Have you a Solicitor? If so, have they asked CCTV?
No they haven't asked . Is this the cctv in the station?
How would cctv show if I had refused to give a sample? Does it have audio?
Ok, I would plead guilty, get a Solicitor to ask CCTV
It generally has audio
So if it says you refused then they would need to show that.
The fact that you were not even asked adds to your defence.
They are required to offer you to provide a sample at the station
Only then if you refuse at the roadside then you are taken to the station and required to offer a sample there
Therefore your Solicitor should ask CCTV
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
Sorry you say above you would plead guilty. Please confirm whether you would plead guilty or not guilty. Also can you tell me what the chances are of getting a custodial sentence if found guilty? I actually go to court tomorrow and as far as I know my solicitor hasn't asked footage. Would I know if the procurator fiscal had asked or viewed any cctv in their enquiries.? At the moment I am of the understanding both parties are going to court with no cctv. If i get found guilty can i go to jail?
Also I was stopped in my parents car. This was seized by the court at the initial hearing. Will I get this returned after trial tomorrow or can they keep it permanently if I am found guilty?
What are my chances of judge giving me a custodial sentence if I get found guilty?
I thought that it was possible to get up to a maximum of 6 months. Is this reserved repeat offenders then?
Ok thanks. Lastly can you say what likely outcome of this would be in absence of any cctv? Will it come down to my word against the police officers?
Ok thanks. But still plead not guilty and let judge decide?
Thankyou. You have been very helpful. Goodbye
