At the end of march i was pulled over for riding unrego'd. I was pretty emotionally strung out at the time; Mum had just come out of a quintuple heart bypass 4 hours ago and I was actually riding home from having dinner with family over from Alice Springs and Sydney. A few weeks later I got a speeding fine in the mail, 74 in a 60. Being on Ls at the time i got a friend to take the points. All sweet thanks mate! On June 7th I walk out of the court hearing for riding unregistered feeling pretty stoked. I pleaded guilty and the judge fined me the minimum ($375) and 2 days loss of license (gave me option of weekend so i could still get to work). Im about to start my bike when i turn my phone on and theres 2 msgs. I check the first and its some Senior Sargent from the sturt traffic police regarding an incident on the 25th of march. Hang on, Ive just been to court for that! Check the second and its my mate saying that hes just had a visit from the cops and he spilled the beans. HUH WTF? Im confused as heck so i sit down and then BAM it hits me. I got the speeding fine on the same day i got pulled over for riding unrego'd and like an idiot i didnt realise cos the fine came in the mail mid april. Turns out my mate, whos squeaky clean and afraid of cops got a visit from a uniform. The uniform issued him a summons and he freaked out and told him everything about me being on Ls etc. I call the senior sgt back and he comes around to interview me. Hes all official and pulls out a digital voice recorder etc. In the interview I tell him everything and i sign it. He presses stop and tells me the official interview is over. He then tells me that lying on a stat dec is a serious crime in fact an indeitable(sp) offence with possible jail time. He then started talking about going to the station for a formal video interview and DNA sampling. I pick my jaw off the ground and then he tells me that he can tell im sorry and he will do his best to pass it thru as just a traffic offence and forget about the stat dec. OMG THANK YOU! He then tells me that it would be a lot of hassle to get me in court for what is in essence a traffic violation anyway. He leaves and I felt a lot better even tho im facing the speeding fine AND riding un-rego'd. Do you think they will fine and penalise me the unrego'd AGAIN on the same day? The camera got me before I was pulled over for unregistered. I payed the rego the next day when i woke up. Anyways today i finish work and theres a msg on my phone. Its the senior sarge and he says that due to the serious nature of the crime Im required to come to the station for a video interview and DNA sampling. Ya ok, thanks sarge, thanks for building up all my hopes before crushing them with a single devastating blow. So I went home and started calling people. I went to the most expensive lawyer/solicitor that offered first meeting and advice free. Going to see them after work tomorrow. Sorry for the novel and thanks for reading!
