Monto man caught driv­ing un­li­censed

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

“MR BLIGH, do you re­alise you are go­ing to lose your li­cence for a min­i­mum of two years?”

Those were the first words that came out of Mag­is­trate Me­lanie Ho’s mouth when Co­hen Court­ney Bligh came be­fore her at Monto Mag­is­trates Court on June 29. Bligh came into the hear­ing charged for driv­ing dis­qual­i­fied, but prose­cu­tor Sergeant Barry Stevens said fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion showed Mr Bligh’s crime to be less se­vere.

“He wasn’t in fact dis­qual­i­fied, but was driv­ing un­li­censed,” he said. Bligh was pre­vi­ously dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for this par­tic­u­lar of­fence in June. He was fined $150.
