Sorry to hear that.

Judging from the number of offences that you have been charged with, the seriousness of the offence and the degree of persistence, you would be looking at a custodial sentence of between 12-18 months. You may also be disqualified from driving for a year and fined.

The judge may take into consideration the effects that a custodial sentence would have on you, especially if you have a family who are dependant on you and the sentence may be suspended.

Hope this helps.

t i was hoping for 6 months looks like going to be alot longer as i have a previous conviction 6 years ago for the same offence i think think the judge has no alternative than to impose a custodial sentencedue to the persistance of offending thanks for your quick response
