Moulton man took sister's car without permission
A Moulton man took his sister's car without her permission during an argument, despite having no insurance to drive it and also being a disqualified driver.
Harry White (32), of Broad Lane, Moulton, admitted taking the vehicle without the consent of the owner and driving without insurance and while disqualified, when he appeared before magistrates in Boston.
Prosecuting, Marie Stace said that on January 23, police were told that following an argument in Edinburgh Drive, Spalding, a Ford Fiesta had been taken by White without the consent of the owner, his sister.
He was seen by officers and he admitted he did not have permission to take or drive the car.
Ms Stace said White had been banned for two years in 2008 for dangerous driving but had been required to take an extended driving test before driving again and had not done so, so he was still disqualified.
Mitigating, Michael Alexander said White's father had died unexpectedly in October so he had moved in with his mother as the family had taken it very badly.
He said the car had been returned undamaged to his sister, who had not wanted the case to go ahead but that White himself wanted it to go ahead as he felt he had to accept his responsibilities.
He was fined £400 and ordered to pay £125 in court costs and charges and was advised he would remain banned from driving until he took the test.
