If you are pleading guilty then that will keep costs fairly low. If you are charged with drink-driving and they are relying on the reading of 70 in breath then you fall into the sentencing bracket that would allow them to impose a fine. However there will be a ban of between 17 to 22 months. There will be costs of £85 if you plead guilty.
Can I clarify anything for you?
no because that is not true. You can only tell the truth in the course of a criminal prosecution or say nothing
yes but they won't. They could do that. They could do anything. But if this was in a layby and the keys were on you or in the vehicle and there was nobody else there then you will be charged with drink-driving.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
yes but on these facts they could and you cannot run a defence that is not true in any event.
You could put them to proof but there is enough evidence to establish that you are driving afraid
Generally speaking you would not get legal aid for drink-driving because it is not imprisonable in this sentencing bracket but you could make an application. Sometimes they can make unusual decisions so it is worth trying
If you are having a trial then they should make the tape available for your collection.
But they don't normally disclose anything at all at the time of release.
And they don't type the interview up at all now.
I'm afraid the misspelling of the area matters not. They can amend that and anyway, it doesn't really matter because drink driving is unlawful anywhere.
You can make contact with him but probably his view would be that there is no point until there is disclosure at the mags court
