Ex-con repeat traffic offender avoids jail

Recent Cases

Our client was charged with a number of traffic offences after he was caught speeding on the Hume Highway in Goulburn on a disqualified licence. He had already served a term of full-time imprisonment for a driving disqualified offence and this was the eighth time he had been charged with such an offence within the last ten years. He had been disqualified from driving until 2034. The Magistrate was considering imposing a sentence of full-time imprisonment, however after forceful submissions from the defence regarding his status as breadwinner in a young, growing family, the Magistrate sentenced our client to 200 hours’ community service and ordered a small fine.
