Breathalyser, we think, reading 85, presumably had Bloodtests at station, held in custody from 1.30pm until approx 12.00pm..my son is deaf, and police had to find an interpreter ...papers say Crown Court on 2 June, three charges
1 driving over limit
2 dangerous driving

Is this the first hearing?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes, offence was yesterday

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. Then it WONT be the Crown Court. It will be the Magistrates Court.
He should get legal representation as the legal limit is 35 in breath. He may be able to get a duty Solicitor at Court.
He will certainly be disqualified from driving for 17-22 months and if its dangerous driving as well until he has passed an extended re-test.
So yes he should get representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
