Driver avoids jail

Geraldton Guardian - - NEWS -

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.
