Disqualified driver receives suspended jail term

A WOMAN who admitted driving whilst disqualified has been given a one month prison term, suspended for a year.

Victoria McCloy (31), of Linden Avenue, Coleraine, was also banned from driving for nine months and fined £275.

Arising out of an incident at Ballywillin Road, Portrush, on January 26 last year, the defendant also admitted using a vehicle without insurance and speeding.

She was caught doing 43mph in a 30mph zone.

A defence barrister told Coleraine Magistrates Court on March 16 the defendant was unaware she had been disqualified as she had “a lot going on”.

The lawyer said the defendant did have insurance but it was rendered invalid because of the driving ban.

He said she had not taken a “cavalier attitude” to insurance.

Deputy District Judge Brian Archer said the defendant had obviously received a courts summons in relation to the previous court case and said she would have been obliged to have attended court.
