Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Was the engine on?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Unfortunately it was as I needed it on so the charger could work, as the battery is too weak and would have died without the engine on

Why couldn’t you just have the ignition on?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Because my battery has a tendency to die if I just have the ignition on

Were you in the drivers seat? Did you have belt on?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I was in the drivers seat and I didn’t have the seat belt on, we were sat there for about 5 minutes before the police car showed up

Ok. They would have to show you were intending to drive. You can plead not guilty and have a trial.

The court would need to be satisfied you were going to drive. If not you would be not guilty.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

I will rate you 5 stars, just want to ask one more thing, what do you think about my situation here with the fact that I have told you

I really don’t know, it depends on the judge hearing the case.

Does that clarify?
