Sorry about your position.
There are sentencing guidelines which you will find here
I'm afraid there is a mandatory disqualification though. The courts have no discretion. In this case it would be 12-16 months.
With drug driving there isn’t much you can do really except plead guilty, accept responsibility and apologise. You can obviously emphasis the absence of any previous, any compelling reasons for driving at that time and the shortness of any distance driven at speed if indeed that is true.
I am sorry but I can only tell you the truth.
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting to lose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even though they have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a good chance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court.
The ultimate decision comes from a county court judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in a criminal case heard in the magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
