Driver avoids jail
A 33-year-old man charged with two counts of driving with a suspended licence has been sentenced to six months jail suspended for six months.
Joel Douglas William Howarth appeared in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Adult Community Corrections told the court Howarth had done well on his pre-sentence order.
Magistrate Donna Webb told Howarth he had been lucky to be placed on the order.
She said Howarth would face jail time if he committed even a minor offence during the next six months.
