    Drink Driving | Footballer Sentenced | Kangs Motoring Offences Defence Solicitors

    Tottenham Hotspur’s goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, was recently fined £50,000 and disqualified from driving for a period of twenty months at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

    Amandeep Murria of Kangs Solicitors comments upon the level of the sentence imposed.

    Facts of the Case | Kangs Motoring Offences Advisory Solicitors

    During the earlier hours of the morning on the 24th August 2018, Mr Lloris was spotted by police whilst driving his Porsche Panamera at 15 mph in a 30 mph zone.

    He also drove through a red light and was driving erratically.

    Having stopped the car, police officers later established that Mr Lloris was over twice the drink drive legal limit.

    At court Mr Lloris pleaded guilty at the first available opportunity and his sentence reflected the credit to which he was entitled for an early plea.

    The very substantial fine which was imposed reflected the level of his declared weekly income.

    The Court’s Sentencing Approach | Kangs Motoring Offence Trial Solicitors

    • In the circumstances outlined above, the court must endorse the licence of the driver and disqualify that person for at least 12 months.
    • In other circumstances if the offender:
    1. has had two or more disqualifications for periods of 56 days or more in the preceding 3 years the court must disqualify for at least 2 years
    2. has been convicted of a relevant offence in the preceding 10 years, the court must disqualify for at least 3 years
    • The court must extend disqualification if imposing immediate custody and, where there is a delay in sentencing after conviction, consider imposing an interim disqualification.

    The court has to consider the following for all offenders, irrespective of plea or previous conviction:

    Level of alcoholStarting pointRangeDisqualificationDisqual. 2nd offence in 10 years – see note above
    Breath (μg)Blood (mg)Urine (mg)

    The Court’s Decision | Kangs Motoring Offences Team

    Having heard all of the facts surrounding the circumstances and the mitigation advanced on behalf of Mr. Lloris, the Court concluded that the sentencing range was between a B and C fine and a low level community order.

    In all of the circumstances, the sentence imposed by the court was in line with the Sentencing Guidelines.
