No conviction for mid-range PCA

In May 2022, our client was charged with the following offence:

  • Drive with middle range PCA, contrary to section 110(4)(A) of the Road Transport Act 2013.

Our client was driving his vehicle when he was pulled over by police and breath tested. He produced a positive BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.102. He was arrested and taken to the police station where he then provided a breath sample with a reading of 0.087.

Our criminal lawyers represented our client at his sentence proceedings at the Blacktown Local Court, where it was successfully argued on his behalf that the Magistrate should not record a criminal conviction for the offence.  Accordingly, he was placed on conditional release order with no conviction.  This meant that our client’s licence was not suspended and he was not required to install an interlock device in his vehicle.
