Criminal Solicitors should be aware under what circumstances, unlawfully obtained samples by the police will be admissible and criminal solicitors should be able to advise on the arguments necessary to have that evidence excluded in any drink driving offence. Good criminal solicitors should be aware of the 2019 case of Twigg which discusses this issue & states that "The decision in Murray is not.....authority for the proposition that any breach of any of the procedures associated with the obtaining of specimens under section 7 of the RTA 1988 means that a specimen is automatically rendered inadmissible in evidence in criminal proceedings."
If you are facing drink drive charges, contact a good firm of criminal solicitors who are experienced in handling Drink Drive defences.
Criminal Solicitors should be aware of the 2019 case of Brendan Weafer, which deals with this issue. The Court of Appeal held that where there is an existing order to take a retest, there is no power to order a retest.
