Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

I am sorry to hear this.

What you can try and do is speak to the police office before the trial and ask if they will agree for you to plead guilty to a lesser offence that does not involve demerit points.

They may agree as the police and Crown don't want to spend valuable court time if it is possible to avoid it.

This sometimes but not always works.

I hope it does.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
