(c) a fine of ?2,500.00
2.3 Mr Harrington was also ordered to pay:
(a) a victim surcharge of ?85.00
(b) costs of ?85.00
2.1 Mr Harrington makes the following admission which the SRA accepts:
That by virtue of his conviction of driving with excess alcohol he has failed to uphold the rule of law in breach of Principle 1 of the SRA Principles 2011.
Why the agreed outcome is appropriate
3.1 The SRA considers that the agreed outcome is appropriate as the conditions in rule 3.1 of the SRA Disciplinary Rules 2011 are met, in that:
(a) it was deliberate or reckless
(b) the agreed outcome is a proportionate outcome in the public interest
(c) the conduct was neither trivial nor justifiably inadvertent
3.2 In deciding that the agreed outcome is proportionate, the SRA has taken into account the admissions made by Mr Harrington and the following mitigation which he has put forward:
(a) he is deeply remorseful for his actions;
(b) he takes full responsibility for his actions and has fully complied with the orders of Portsmouth Magistrates' Court;
(c) he has no previous convictions; and
(d) he co-operated with the SRA during the course of their investigation.
3.3 The amount of the fine takes into account all relevant circumstances, including those set out in Appendix 1 to the SRA Disciplinary Procedure Rules 2011.
3.4 The SRA considers it appropriate that this agreement is published in the interests of transparency in the regulatory and disciplinary process.
Acting in a way which is inconsistent with this Agreement
4.1 Mr Harrington agrees that he will not act in any way which is inconsistent with this agreement such as, for example, by denying the admissions made in this agreement.
4.2 If Mr Harrington acts in a way which is inconsistent with this agreement, the conduct which is subject to this agreement may be subject to further consideration by the SRA. That may result in a disciplinary sanction or a referral to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal on the original facts and allegations. Acting in a way which is inconsistent with this agreement may also constitute a separate breach of Principles 2, 6 and 7 of the SRA Principles 2011.
