My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand I am very limited on what I can tell you and that you may have to get more detailed advice.
I would assume that you pleaded not guilty and had a hearing. If not and you pleaded guilty then this means that you admitted to be driving and this is why the court sentenced you as they did.
Being 8 months ago it is now too late to do anything because the appeal time is 28 days from the date of the sentencing.
You should be getting copies of all documents form the solicitor and also go to the court and get a transcript. Then see another solicitor that practices in criminal law and get more detailed advise on what can be done and if it is possible to re-open the matter. But the appeal time is 28 days. You will need special leave to do this. If you pleaded guilty then it is even harder.
I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive. I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
