Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
What is the hearing tomorrow?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It is at a Magistrates Court for Drink Driving. I pleaded not guilty a few weeks ago, and have obtained expert evidence etc and instructed barrister and solicitors to represent me. I am pleading not guilty. Also I was just informed 5 mins ago that the appointed barrister due to represent me tomorrow at the magistrates court is in Dublin and cant make it.
