Place:Chelmsford Magistrates Court
Offence:Driving whilst Disqualified and Driving without a valid Certificate of Insurance
Millars Solicitors were instructed by Miss E who was very concerned about the prospect of a custodial sentence as she was driving whilst disqualified. Powerful mitigation was advanced at Court emphasising that Miss E was an unsung hero caring for her 85 year step mother, sick husband and depressed son as well as holding down a full-time job as a prison officer. The Judge had some sympathy in the circumstances and imposed 6 penalty points for the offence of driving whilst disqualified, with no separate penalty for the driving without a valid certificate of insurance matter. This was the least sentence that could possibly have been imposed. Miss E was expecting that the disqualification would be extended and that a community order would be imposed, at least. She was greatly relieved and thankful for the service provided by Millars Solicitors.
