Defendant avoids custodial sentence after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice

June 10, 2019

A motorcyclist represented by Alex Menary from Exchange Chambers has avoided a custodial sentence after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice.

The 43 year old defendant attempted to conceal his number plate with his hand having been caught speeding.  He entered a guilty plea at Bradford Crown Court and was sentenced to a 2 year Community Order with unpaid work and fined £1000. The sentencing judge described his conduct as a moment of crass stupidity and wholly unsophisticated.

Alex Menary was instructed by Chris Fallows from Slater and Gordon.

Alex has also developed a specialist Police Law practice, accepting instructions to advise and represent Officers accused of misconduct across the North of England.
