A disqualified driver moved a friend’s car and was given a two year driving ban.
Mr Crump, had an existing driving ban which was issued due to having no licence and driving without insurance. This ban was due to end early October 2013 however, the courts have given him a further two years on the ban, ordered him to pay £85 in court costs, a 12 month community order, a requirement to undertake the thinking skills programme and 60 hour of unpaid work, not bad considering he moved the car no more than 100 yards.
Michael Taylor, defending, said his client was released from prison last June and was making good progress. He got caught up helping a friend fix their car and made the mistake of moving it down the road. It was a foolish mistake but Mr Crump pleaded guilty at the first opportunity and was the one to admit he had no insurance.
Mr Crump told police however, that he was unaware he was disqualified as he wasn’t present in court when he was sentenced.
