No more chances

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

ONE man has been sent to jail af­ter his chances fi­nally ran out.

Af­ter fre­quent driv­ing-re­lated crimes, Socrates Mene­gakis was sen­tenced to six months im­pris­on­ment on Mon­day, with a pa­role re­lease date of Au­gust 12.

The 38-year-old Can­non­vale man pleaded guilty to charges of driv­ing on a sus­pended li­cence, driv­ing unin­sured, un­reg­is­tered and with­out the proper num­ber plates af­ter be­ing stopped by police in Can­non­vale on March 10.

With an atro­cious driv­ing record, the court heard Mene­gakis had al­ready been charged with three un­li­censed driv­ing of­fences in the past five years, in­clud­ing dis­qual­i­fied driv­ing charges, and he was al­ready on a three-month sus­pended prison sen­tence.

On top of his prison sen­tence, Mene­gakis was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for five years and fined $1000.
