Repeat disqualified driver narrowly avoids time in jail

SOME people never learn.

Adrian Fabian Muller was caught by police on Saturday, September 27 for the fourth time driving without a licence.

Magistrate Mark Morrow was not impressed when Muller appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

"I doubt whether I have seen a worse traffic history," Magistrate Morrow said.

Muller's disqualified driving licence records dated back to the 1990s.

To make matters worse, when he was intercepted by police he was also on parole for an unrelated offence.

The 43-year-old man told police at the time he was driving to get groceries, but when he pleaded guilty in court he said  he had been out looking for work.

Magistrate Morrow noted similar past cases usually resulted in imprisonment.

For defying a court order, he was sentenced to three months imprisonment with immediate parole eligibility.

But he won't be allowed behind the wheel again for another two years.
