My younger brother aged 19 was caught drink driving after having two drinks.

Customer Question

Hello
My younger brother aged 19 was caught drink driving after having two drinks.
Will he be jailed?
Or will it be a straight ban after he attends court next month.
Submitted: 10 months ago.
Category: Traffic Law
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The breathaliser showed he was 22.5
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He has a clean license and no criminal record. He was arrested over night and was released on the Saturday morning. He was given a court date for the 18th of feb. will he need a lawyer and what is likely going to be the outcome?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.
Are you asking what sentence he will get?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yes? Will he sentenced to Jail time?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Or will he be most likely be fined and banned from driving?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.
What was his reading?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
His reading was 30
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.
In blood?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No breathaliser
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Not blood, he was only breathalysed
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.
In that case, he will just be fined and banned.
He is only 8 mg over the limit in Scotland.
They would just give him a fine for the offence.
He will be banned for a minimum of twelve months though I'm afraid.
He will only be banned if he pleads guilty or is convicted though. If he intends to plead guilty then he should not drive to court as he will be unable to drive home.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Jo
