Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Hi, I'm a solicitor in Scotland and will help you with this. Section 196 of the 1995 Act isn't a specific criminal offence. It relates to discounting a sentence for an early plea of guilty. What specific road traffic offence did you plead guilty to and when?
You mean speeding. Was it dealt with by the court? Were you offered a fixed penalty? What was the speed limit and what was your speed? Why did you lie on the UCAS form?
Yes it was a conviction. Any court proceedings where you plead guilty is a conviction. You can't remove this. Your only remedy is to appeal to the education authority on the basis that the office is so minor as to merit disregarding it completely.
Yes, it is.
You're welcome. Don't forget to leave a positive rating on the system so that I am credited for my time.
