DI­VI­SION 10 coun­cil­lor and Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil mayoral can­di­date Ju­lia Leu is re­manded to ap­pear in court to face a DUI charge on De­cem­ber 4.

Last month po­lice charged the coun­cil­lor with drink driv­ing in Moss­man, af­ter she recorded a blood al­co­hol count of .071.

The charge states that Ms Leu did drive over the gen­eral al­co­hol limit but not over the mid­dle al­co­hol limit. She had been charged with one of­fence. Rep­re­sent­ing Ms Leu in the Moss­man Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day was Bolt Burchill Tran­ter lawyer Michael Bolt, who re­quested an ad­journ­ment on be­half of his client. Mag­is­trate Braes said that con­sid­er­ing Ms Leu failed to ap­pear he had to is­sue a war­rant for her ar­rest, but he post­poned the war­rant be­cause she was legally rep­re­sented. ‘‘The dif­fi­culty I face is that it’s a no­tice to ap­pear and it’s a drink driv­ing charge,’’ Mag­is­trate Braes said in court. ‘‘I hereby is­sue a war­rant for her ar­rest and [she is] re­manded to ap­pear on De­cem­ber 4. The war­rant is post­poned un­til De­cem­ber 4.’’
