Drink Driving Law
Drink driving (DUI) is now a very serious offence.
Losing your driver’s licence not only has a huge impact on your family, but can possibly jeopardise your job, especially if you need your licence for work. If you have been charged with Low Range, Middle Range of High Range prescribed content alcohol (PCA) you need to speak to one of our specialist Criminal and DUI Lawyers in Sydney and Newcastle or the Central Coast straight away. We can advise you on the best way to present your case to the Court by assessing the circumstances of your arrest including if any inappropriate steps were taken by the Police at the time of arrest. This will help you decide on an appropriate plea to the Court. We understand what a stressful time this can be for you and your family and will use our years of experience in getting you the best possible outcome.
The effect of this is that if the accused raises the issue that he/she honestly and reasonably believed that he/she was not over the legal limit at the time of driving then, unless the prosecution can negative that issue beyond a reasonable doubt, the accused is entitled to be acquitted.
