No li­cence gets a CCO, $700 fine

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

A MAN who didn’t know he wasn’t li­censed has been fined $700.

Bren­ton Northausen ap­peared in Echuca Mag­is­trates Court on Tues­day to plead guilty to un­li­censed driv­ing and a breach of a com­mu­nity cor­rec­tions or­der.

Po­lice prose­cu­tor Se­nior Con­sta­ble Rachael Hitchins said the ac­cused was ob­served driv­ing on Kerr Rd, Stan­hope on May 5.

‘‘The in­for­mant was on foot and un­able to in­ter­cept the ac­cused but iden­ti­fied him,’’ she said. ‘‘A VicRoads check con­firmed he was an un­li­censed driver.

‘‘On May 11 he was in­ter­viewed by po­lice and did not have a law­ful ex­cuse.’’

Mag­is­trate Michael King said he was giv­ing Northausen an­other chance.

‘‘I am can­celling your CCO and is­su­ing a new or­der for 12 months,’’ he said. ‘‘You will com­plete 139 hours of com­mu­nity work.’’

He was also or­dered to pay $70.50 in statu­tory costs.
