Consultant has NIP case dropped due to Police failures

Case discontinued by the prosecution
6 May, 2015

Lead Lawyer

Case study summary

Our client was a management consultant with several employees. He had been alleged to have been speeding in a 30 mile per hour restricted area.

Case study

The NIP was sent to him during a postal strike which the police had had adequate warning about and still sent the NIP by regular mail.

His NIP was received after 21 days, and then he received a court summons. He consulted us. After the first hearing, our barrister presented the prosecution with the problem relating to the NIP's date of receipt. The Prosecution adjourned and later dropped the charge.  Verdict: prosecution dropped case, client's legal costs reimbursed by the court.
