Miss K instructed Cunninghams Draycott Browne having been summonsed to Court in respect of an allegation of failing to furnish information. The receipt of the summons was Miss K’s first knowledge that an alleged offence had been committed. Miss K’s car had been flashed speeding on the motorway in Greater Manchester, which resulted in a Notice of Intended Prosecution being sent out by the police. Miss K had never received the Notices of Intended Prosecution. Had she received them she would have had no reason to ignore them as she was not the driver of the vehicle at the time of the alleged speeding offence.
Miss K contacted Carl Millar who made representations to the Crown Prosecution Service on Miss K’s behalf. The Crown were of the opinion that the matter should proceed to trial and a trial date was fixed.
Miss K’s case was fully prepared for trial and Miss K was concerned by the fact that she already had 9 points endorsed on her licence and a conviction for the alleged failing to furnish information, which carries 6 penalty points, could result in her being disqualified from driving for a period of 6 months under the totting up procedure.
Paul Turner represented Miss K at the trial at Stockport Magistrates Court, Cheshire. At the conclusion of the trial Miss K was found not guilty of the offence and the Court awarded a defendants’ costs order.
Miss K was delighted with the result as she has found herself being summonsed to Court through no fault of her own and she avoided receiving any further penalty points on her licence.
