Road Traffic Solicitor (Scotland)

I am afraid that is an impossible question to answer at this stage. Each case turns on its own facts and circumstances and so a solicitor will require to ingather and assess all of the prosecution evidence to be able to ascertain your chances of acquittal.

The Crown requires to prove a charge against you beyond reasonable doubt; if after your trial the Sheriff has a reasonable doubt as to your guilt, then you are entitled to be found not guilty.
