Hi, do I plead not guilty to both charges, even though I sent a copy of the NIP to the court when I pleaded not guilty to failing to supply information and it is me on the NIP as driver.
I am due in court on the 25th June for "plea to be entered for the offence of speeding and failing to provide information", will the prosecution be there on this day, if not and I plea guilty to speeding I have nothing to negotiate when it gets to trial. As it stands the prosecution do not know who was driving as they claim they never received the NIP that I posted.
The court has a copy of the original NIP, with me on it as named driver.
If I am going to be convicted of failing to give information, then why should I give that information.
If I go to court and plea not guilty to both charges and supply no defence
will the magistrate produce the copy of the NIP. I assume I will be found guilty for failing to produce information, am I correct in assuming that with no evidence they can not convict on the speeding, this way I will be convicted of 1 offence albeit the more serious one, If I plea guilty to being the driver, I could still be found guilty of failing to give information as well.
How many points is it for the two charges.
