Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
This is a serious matter and he will lose his licence for at least 6 months if he is over 20, or at least 3 months if under that age.
He can see the duty lawyer on the day, but if there were problems with the paperwork then he should see a lawyer to talk about the case, and see if there is a defence. The police are obliged to provide full copies of all the paperwork, and this will help assess whether he has a defence. If there is no defence then he may be able to apply for a work licence, but he will need a lawyer to help with this.The duty lawyer will be able to help him find someone who can do this for him
Do you know a lawyer I can fax the paperwork to or how we should go about finding out if he has a defense. Do you know a lawyer in Gisborne as his court date is tomorrow in Ruatoria?
We live in Hicks Bay two and one half hours away from Gizzy.
