Sis­ter was not pay­ing fines

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN who was caught drink driv­ing while his driver’s li­cence was sus­pended has been fined $750 and lost his li­cence for a fur­ther four months.

Don­ald Washe In­de­heri Olumbe, 30, pleaded guilty in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court last week to driv­ing over the gen­eral al­co­hol limit but not over the mid­dle al­co­hol limit and driv­ing with­out a li­cence which had been sus­pended un­der the State Penalty En­force­ment Act.

Prose­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court Olumbe recorded a blood al­co­hol read­ing of 0.09 when he was stopped by po­lice on Shute Har­bour Rd at 11.50pm.

The court heard his li­cence had also been sus­pended in May be­cause State Penalty En­force­ment Registry fines had not been paid.

Olumbe also told po­lice he had reg­is­tered his sis­ter’s car in his name and she had been get­ting fines and not pay­ing them, Mr Beamish said.
