Prisoner serving ‘lengthy sentence’ given month long driving ban for speeding offence

His defence said: 'He has since got a lengthy prison sentence and the outcome of this is academic'

A Lurgan man who is currently a sentenced prisoner has been issued a one month disqualification for speeding.

The 30-year-old’s solicitor commented: “You can see from his record that at this time he had other things on his mind.”

Jamie Anderson, 30, of Avenue Road, pleaded guilty to excess speed and failing to produce a driving licence at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Prosecution outlined that on August 4, at 5.25pm, police detected the defendant driving a Ford Focus on the Gilford Road in the direction of Lurgan at 40mph. This was 10mph in excess of the speed limit.

Anderson elected for a fixed penalty but failed to produce his licence within the given time.

Defence solicitor Pat Vernon stated: “He lost his licence, that is why he could not produce it at the time. You can see from his record that at this time he had other things on his mind.

“He has since got a lengthy prison sentence and the outcome of this is academic.”

Anderson was disqualified from driving for one month and was ordered to pay a fine of £110.
