With guy Martin was cleared of all charges of fraud on rights, he was recognized as autistic
Prosecutors have dropped all charges against the motorcycle racer and TV presenter guy Martin, who was convicted in a fraudulent driver’s license. The famous daredevil had to appear before the court on 6 January 2020.
Martin was accused of using a fake Irish driver’s license to change its license in the UK to drive the large trucks. Despite the worldwide fame and popularity, guy continues to work as a truck mechanic, because he loves this business. The guy denies everything he’s accused. According to his version, he passed the test while working in Northern Ireland, therefore, has the full right to require changes in the categories of rights in the UK…
Why the Prosecutor’s office stopped the proceedings? Martin was diagnosed with autism. Despite the high efficiency, this diagnosis explains a lot, including the guy passion for motorcycling and risky tricks. Psychiatrists told the court that Martin is not always in his right mind, so sometimes says or does something strange, and understands the speech of other people literally does not perceive the implication. The Prosecutor’s office accepted this explanation and believes that the guy is not responsible for the offence, which, incidentally, is purely administrative.
In this case, autism is not for guy Martin verdict. Just that his brain works differently than most people.
