He was banned from driving for two years.
He has to undertake 120 hours of unpaid work and was fined £145.00
The defendant must comply with the following requirements within the supervision period of 12 months: Unpaid Work Requirement: Carry out unpaid work for 120 hours within the next twelve months.
This work will be supervised by the responsible officer. In the event of activation of sentence:
Harlow is becoming the worst county for drink driving. This driver should be jailed, short,sharp shock, will do more than a slap on the wrist. He could have injured so many people, I know he did not, but driving in that state, he knew he could.
The criminal justice is pathetic. No jail time and a £145 fine after wasting so much of the tax payers money. Would get a more harsh penalty for no tv license. This country is a joke.
Adding on to your point Roger - you guys are all on your lonesome after voting out of the EU. Lol.
Janick - look at all the benefits of leaving the EU. I've listed them here... 1, 2, 3, .........
Janick, what the hell has, leaving the EU got to do with drink driving?
