Moulton man fined after driving while disqualified
A disqualified driver was fined £500 after being found behind the wheel by police.
Kevin John White (53) of Broad Lane, Moulton, admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance in Boston Magistraes Court earlier today.
The bench heard that White was subject to a suspended prison sentence imposed just two months before at Norwich Crown Court as well as a previous conviction for disqualified driving from 2019.
Prosecuting, Jim Clare said White had been stopped by police at 8.30am on January 3 in Burr Lane while driving his BMW car.
Mitigating, Rebecca Freitas said the offence was fully admitted and asked the magistrates to deal with the case and not send it to the crown court that had imposed the suspended sentence as they were not like offences.
She said he had been coping with drug addiction and was on a methadone script and that he was 'very proud' of his progress and was starting a new job the following day.
The magistrates fined him £500 and ordered him to pay £135 in court costs and charges.
His disqualification period was extended by six months.
