Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
When was this sentence handed down?
Did you know of the Court proceedings?
Ok - you can go to the Court and give a statutory declaration.
That is where you go before the Court and say you didnt know anything about it. The conviction gets set aside and the matter could start again.
You can then speak with the prosecution and see if you can settle by way of fine instead of them re-issuing the summons.
But a statutory declaration is what you need to do.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No, you have to be there and swear before the Court.
You dont have to do it now - you could do it in a week or so
Does that clarify?
If its accepted the matter is set aside straight away. But you have to go before a Court to make a statutory declaration
Sadly not, you need to be there for the Court to accept it.
Really you need to do it within 3 months of knowing about the conviction.
Sadly not - that is the only way as you have a conviction on your name.
Yes it would be. It would show on your criminal record for a limited period.Does that clarify?
You wouldn't have a conviction but you would have a criminal record
Does that clarifY?
