Katie Price uses legal loophole to escape speeding charge

Case dismissed: Katie Price, pictured with her husband Peter Andre outside the High Court in London last July, will not face trial for an alleged speeding offence

Katie Price became the latest celebrity to escape a possible driving ban yesterday through a legal technicality.

The glamour model also known as Jordan was accused of breaking a 30mph limit in Brighton last year.

But when Sussex Police repeatedly wrote to her to ask who was driving the car they claim they received no reply.

That led to a charge of not providing the identity of the driver and to the case being listed for trial before magistrates yesterday.

And that gave her defence barrister the chance to argue, on a technicality, that the testimony of the prosecution’s only witness should be disallowed.

The argument was accepted by the Brighton court and the prosecution could offer no evidence.

Miss Price, from Woldingham, Surrey, who was not in court, was then formally acquitted of both charges of speeding and not providing the identity of the driver. Source
