Drug Driving case discontinued

Listed Under: News

Recently, a solicitor for JW Hughes & Co. acted on behalf of a gentlemen who appeared before Llandudno Magistrates’ Court for an offence of drug driving.  The drug in question was cannabis. The alleged offence went back to April 2018 when our client was stopped in the Colwyn Bay area and provided a positive reading for cannabis.

Our client disputed that he could have been over the limit.  He instructed us when the matter was in Court in July.  We obtained legal aid for him and instructed our own Expert to analyse the blood and the results showed that he was indeed below the legal limit.  The Prosecution later conceded that there was reasonable doubt in relation to the case and they discontinued the case against our client.
