Graham Henson succesful on Jamelia appeal

Mon, 24 Jan 2011

BIRMINGHAM pop princess Jamelia has won a court battle after a judge accepted she didn’t know she was being prosecuted for speeding because of her jet-set lifestyle.
 
Speed cameras captured her Audi Quattro being driven at 43mph on a road with a 30mph limit in the city just after midnight on August 15, 2009.
 
Notice of the speeding offence was then sent to the 30-year-old singer’s Birmingham home but she failed to respond to it and was eventually convicted by magistrates, in her absence, of a charge of failing to give information in relation to the identity of the driver.
 
Jamelia, whose surname is Davis, of Barnt Green, appeared at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday and appealed against the conviction and sentence.
