Our solicitor Lisa Taylor represented a teacher charged with driving under the influence in the Murgon Magistrates Court.
The man had passed out in his car at a petrol station on Melbourne Cup Day and when police attended and breathalysed him had a BAC of 0.207.
Ms Taylor emphasised her client’s remorse for his actions, his prior good record and his plea of guilty on the first occasion. The man had also completed a Traffic Offenders Program and had been cycling to and from work since losing his license.
The client was fined $1100 and disqualified from driving for eight months. Following the disqualification period, he will be required to have an interlock device fitted to his car.
The court did not record a conviction due to the effect this could have on his work as a teacher.
