Driver in Police Chase Avoids Prison
The driver in this case, represented in the Crown Court by Barrister Harry Bowyer, was charged with dangerous driving, failure to provide a specimen and possession of a controlled drug of class A. The charges arose out of a police chase where it was alleged that he drove at speeds of over 90mph in a 30mph zone, travelled the wrong way up a one way street and went the wrong way round some keep left bollards.
The defendant’s previous convictions ran to some pages.
Despite a guilty plea at the earliest opportunity a prison sentence was inevitable but the Judge was persuaded by the defendant’s personal mitigation to suspend the sentence for 12 months.
