Police consider appealing Gisborne drink-driving decision
February 4, 2013, 10:28 am
Police are taking legal advice on whether they will appeal a court decision to discharge a sportswoman on drink-driving charges.
In the Gisborne District Court last week, Judge Graham Hubble discharged the woman without conviction and granted her permanent name suppression after she appeared on a charge of driving with almost twice the legal alcohol limit.
Police will now be seeking advice from Crown Law on whether an appeal against the decision will be lodged.
