Drug-driv­ing

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A JU­BILEE Pocket man put his car on the mar­ket to avoid the temp­ta­tion to drive un­li­censed. Richard Shane Wil­cox­son, 28, pleaded guilty to driv­ing with­out a li­cence while af­fected by drugs.

He was pulled over on Au­gust 17 at 9.56am on Sanc­tu­ary Ave in Ju­bilee Pocket, where a saliva test later re­vealed he had mar­i­juana and metham­phetamine in his sys­tem.

De­fence lawyer El­iz­a­beth Smith submitted a screen shot show­ing that Wil­cox­son put his car up for sale to avoid fu­ture is­sues. Wil­cox­son was dis­qual­i­fied for two years and three months and fined $1500.
