I've sent already on last Friday.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

Okay.

We can't do anything about that now.

I presume this is a 70 miles an hour zone?

I don't really know what to write, is what I wrote gonna help? What kind of punishment do u think I mind get?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm just so worry about it, I've read something online, I might be disqualified , is this right?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it's a 70 zone
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

No, it isn't. You face the risk that they will vacate your guilty plea and set it down for trial because what you have written in mitigation amounts to the tenuous argument of the defence of necessity otherwise known as medical reasons. There's nothing you can do about that now. Had you posted earlier I would have told you not to send it but it's too late now.

If that does happen then you could always ask that it be listed you to plead guilty. It will still rack are the costs against you but it won't have any other impact.

If it they are saying you were doing 100 miles an hour or thereabouts in a 70 mile an hour zone then the punishments are either six points or a ban of between 7 to 56 days. As long as you are not doing over 110 miles an hour I would expect six point.

There will also be a fine of between 125% to 175% of your weekly income, costs that depend on when you plead, and the victim surcharge of roughly 10% of the fine.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Because I went a solisitor, he told the cost of him would be higher than my fine, I just did by myself, can u tell me how long does it take for them to make decision then send the results back to me? And I'm still a student, I haven't got any income, my car is worth around 16000 pound, and my monthly spending is around 1000. What the fine will be? Thank u
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

If they set it down the trial then the issue won't be the fine but costs which will probably be about 400 to around 600.

The sum of the fine proper depends on your weekly income. They will work out your weekly income. If you do not provide the the income that you receive weekly then they will presume that it is £415.

I realise that you don't receive an income weekly but it is possible to work out the average by working out what you receive yearly and then dividing it by 52.

Ok if they set it down for a trial, what would happen to me? But I received something around 100,000 in 2015, do u think should I tell them, if not, how can I not to? If 100,000, I'm gonna get a huge fine right?
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

I am not sure what you mean?

I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
