Repeat unlicensed driver handed jail sentence

DRIVING less than one kilometre on a public road was enough to earn a repeat unlicensed Isis River woman a nine month jail sentence at Childers Magistrates Court on Friday.

Lesley Isabelle Snell was on a court-ordered three-year driving disqualification when she was picked up driving an uninsured and unregistered "farm bomb" on Broadhurst Homestead Rd, on May 8.

Snell told police she was just checking on her neighbour's animals.

Police Prosecutor Hayley Glover said Snell lied to police about who owned the vehicle and when she said she had never held a driving licence.

Eight previous convictions for unlicensed driving were taken into account when Magistrate John Smith sentenced Snell to three months' jail.

Magistrate Smith issued a disqualification from driving for four years, to be added to her three-year suspension.

She was fined $400 for driving unregistered and $450 for being uninsured.

Her previously suspended six-month imprisonment was enforced, with three months extra for the latest offence.
